Dead & Company Concert Poster by Owen Murphy
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A Dead & Company concert poster by South Jersey born, artist Owen Murphy is proving to be a hot collectible. The poster, created for a June 20th, 2019 concert by Dead & Company at BB&T Bank Pavilion, in Camden, N.J., was released in a limited, numbered edition of 700. Collectors snapped up the 580 posters that were made available at the concert in under 5 hours. The band chose to keep 50 of the posters and the artist's 70 personal copies sold out online in under 60 seconds!
"When Dead and Company commissioned me to create this artwork, it was literally a dream come true," says Murphy." I grew up in South Jersey, listening to the Grateful Dead, and I've attended dozens of concerts at this venue over the past 20 years. My great grandfather even worked at Campbell's soup after World War 1 which is headquartered in Camden. It was critical for me to include as many local references in this poster as I possibly could."
The poster's clever artwork, considered by many collectors to be Murphy's best, features Uncle Sam displaying posters for the show that are designed liked Andy Warhol's famous Campbell Soup cans. Philadelphia's iconic skyline is in the background with a silhouette of a Grateful Dead dancing bear taking the place of William Penn.
Murphy, now based in Baltimore, Maryland, began his career on April 1, 2011, when he created a poster for the popular jam band, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. In the past eight years Murphy has created concert posters for world famous bands such as Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh and Friends, Govt' Mule, Disco Biscuits, Slightly Stupid, and many others that are now highly sought after by collectors.
