Originally designed in the 60s as a logo for an insurance company, the smiley face was hijacked briefly by American counter-culture in the 70s, before crashing back into popular consciousness with acid house in the late 80s, early 90s”
“We adopted the logo. It represented what we were about: peace, love, unity, and happiness.” — Danny Rampling
Here we have an original piece of artwork. Signed WISR
WISR only made three of these smiley pieces so they’re super rare. What I know about the artist is he was an original 90s raver, loved art, music and club culture.
