Poster, Blowing in the Mind/Mister Tambourine Man, 1968
For this poster featuring Bob Dylan, Sharp drew inspiration from the musician’s signature curly hair. Radiating circular motifs imitate the curls and also borrow from Albrecht Dürer’s woodcut, seen nearby. Just above Dylan’s forehead and scattered throughout, Sharp inserts the knot patterns that Dürer created in the early 16th century.
