This poster is signed in silver metallic ink by the artist, the late great Rick Griffin!


Rick Griffin's Hawaiian Aoxomoxoa is one of most coveted, desirable and expensive concert posters in the world. We have sold multiple copies for over $50,000!


The reprint offered here offers the opportunity to own the EXACT SAME ART without paying the price of a fine automobile or small condo.. This poster has it all, incredible color, design and one of the best examples of the artists signature lettering style. It was created for a concert by one of the greatest bands in the history of Rock n Roll, and it's incredibly scarce.


The Hawaii Aoxomoxoa was inspired by the artwork for the third Grateful Dead album. This poster was created for a run of cancelled 1969 Dead shows in Honolulu, Hawaii. As the legend goes, the printer did not get paid by the promoter and destroyed all but a handful of copies. 


This piece is Signed by the late great artist, in Museum Quality Condition and 100% Original with no restoration! In October 2017, another 9.4 graded example reached $1047 in our auction and it wasn't SIGNED like this one here! More and more collectors are coming into the fold with the knowledge that artist signatures add a whole other dimension to their treasures. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot.
