Summary "Painter, poet, performance artist and musician, Adrian Henri (1932-2000) wanted "everything to happen". His early Pop paintings and poems incorporated urban imagery, advertising slogans, traffic signs or stuffed birds crucified on broken bicycle wheels. A pioneer of Performance Art, he brought together poets, musicians and visual artists in the first UK happenings, whilst also performing his work with Beat groups, making poetry part of pop youth culture. He came to prominence alongside Roger McGough and Brian Patten in The Mersey Sound (Penguin, 1967), one of the best-selling poetry anthologies of all time.... While focusing on Adrian Henri's work as a performer in the 1960s, this book highlights his role in connecting the countercultural art, poetry and music scenes in Britain and internationally"--Back cover.
