Was Levon Mosgofian of Tea Lautrec Litho the Most Psychedelic Printer in Rock? by Ben Marks

If it weren’t for the career pressmen at companies such as Bindweed Press, Cal Litho, West Coast Litho, and Tea Lautrec Litho, the drug-fueled dreams of Wes Wilson, Alton Kelley, Stanley Mouse, Victor Moscoso, and Rick Griffin might never have seen the light of day.

A Mural That Grows With Each Donation

Madsteez was born with a rare condition in his left eye that enables him to only see abstract shapes and colors when his right eye is closed. Throughout his life, he has wondered what it would be like to have perfect vision, and has questioned if he would still be an artist and what his art would look like if he saw the world through a normal lens? Using this disability as a starting point, two filmmakers are creating a short asking “what if?” and in turn Madsteez, known for his large, bright pieces is creating a work of art central to the film. Each pledge of $100 on kickstarter entitles you to one 20″ x 20″ canvas, that will then become part of the mural. The more you buy, the bigger it gets.
