The Retinal Circus poster series was born in the sparkling bayside city of Vancouver in the mid-1960s, when the culture was fast becoming shaped by the same psychedelic movement that was brewing in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. In early 1967, Retinal Circus, a club previously called Dante's Inferno, began booking blues, rock, psychedelic, and rockabilly acts to perform inside its basement walls. Steve Seymour was one of three artists contributing to the Retinal Circus posters, and he employed a distinctly colorful style.
