Rock Art is a graphic art & print genre directly linked with the Rock Music experience. It was born out of the San Francisco Bay Area Rock Concert & Dance scene in the late 1960s in response to the demand for posters, handbills, and flyer advertisements for these events.
Produced by some of the most imaginative graphic artists & printers of the era, the iconic posters utilized bright colors, bold imagery, and hallucinogenic fonts to announce yet hint to the attendee of mystery and experience of the musical & lights odyssey that lie in store.
WHAT INSPIRED THE NAME MYSTERIOSO?
Mysterioso gets its name from a Rock Legend involving two of its greatest heroes: George Harrison & Eric Clapton.
In 1968, Harrison was trying to get the other Beatles to agree to record “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” during the White Album Sessions. Frustrated with their refusal, Harrison invited Clapton to play the iconic weeping lead guitar parts, putting the others on their best agreeable behavior.
At the time, Apple and Polydor were not owned by the same company, so obtaining the rights to use Clapton’s name in the liner notes would put the release off for too long. So Harrison cited him under the pseudonym ‘L’Angelo Misterioso.’ Some months later when Cream was recording their record Goodbye, Harrison returned the favor on the classic song “Badge,” and was cited as “L’Angelo Misterioso.” Drop the “I” for a “Y” and the rest is for the ages.
THE MYSTERIOSO ROCK TEE EXPERIENCE
The Mysterioso Rock Tee Brand mixes our signature design style with a vibrant, high-quality screen print to create a vintage inspired, ultra-soft garment that only gets better with age. Each Rock Tee is drawn and printed by hand in small batches to ensure each one to be a unique piece of wearable art.
Every time you put on a Mysterioso Rock Tee, you carry a message and a conversation. Whether you’re following a Vision Quest, rocking fully at a music festival, or while enjoying a Sunday Mindstorm at home, our rock tees are made to be worn and to be rocked fully.
THE ROCK TEE FIT
Our Rock Tees offer a fitted, athletic cut, with an ultra-soft, vintage feel. For a more relaxed fit, we suggest choosing the next size up. Most of our garments consist of combed cotton, polyester, and/or tri-blends. We want our tees and apparel to be the favorites of your collection for a long time.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR ROCK TEE
As we suggest on our label, always wash in cold water and tumble dry low or hang dry. Exposing the garment to any higher heat, what we call nuking, will shrink your Rock Tee about a half a size.
