ELECTRICAL BANANA: MASTERS OF PSYCHEDELIC ART is the first definitive examination of the international language of psychedelia, focusing on the most important practitioners in their respective fields; from advertising to fashion to music to film, it defined the look of a decade. Through a deft combination of hundreds of unseen images and exclusive interviews and essays, ELECTRICAL BANANA aims to revise the common perception of psychedelic art, showing it to be more innovative, compelling, and revolutionary than was ever thought before.

The artists include Marijke Koger, the Dutch artist responsible for dressing The Beatles; Mati Klarwein, who painted the cover for Miles Davis' BITCHES BREW; Keiichi Tanaami, the Japanese master of psychedelic posters; Heinz Edelmann, the German illustrator and designer of the YELLOW SUBMARINE animated film; Tadanori Yokoo, whose prints and books defined the '60s in Japan; Dudley Edwards, a painter, car decorator, and graphic embellisher for the London scene, and the enigmatic Australian Martin Sharp, whose work for Cream and the underground made him a hippie household name in Europe.
