About John Van Hamersveld

Even if someone thinks they do not know the artwork of John Van Hamersveld, they have probably come face to face with it at some point in their life, possibly through the album artwork of their favorite band, through an experience at the 1984 Olympics that Van Hamersveld was commissioned to design, or at the drive through window of a Fatburger that he re-branded.

Holding influential positions as an Art Director for Surfer Magazine and Capitol Records, he designed hundreds of album covers for musicians like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles along with leading the surf culture aesthetic for decades. His iconic image for the movie The Endless Summer in 1964 and his concert poster for Jimi Hendrix at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium in 1968 have become two of the most recognizable and well-known images in their respective genres, securing Van Hamersveld’s place in design history.

The Signs of Life installation will include a unique vinyl design on the upper plaza at FIGat7th, as well as four portraits of famous musicians and composers in the windows of Bank of America, facing Hope St and the famous Walt Disney Concert Hall on Grand. Through this colorful, dynamic, and vibrant pop imagery, you will be introduced, or reconnected, to the work of an LA icon.
