From the legendary UFO club nights of the 60s, the house music explosion of the 80s and to the 90s Balearic scene, otherworldly sounds have always intertwined with visual art and design.

Opening on Wednesday 20th April, three of the UK's most influential graphic artists present their work as members of an ever morphing collective named Golden Sun Movement. Presenting a selection of hypnotically striking works at Idea Generation Gallery, London, Luke Insect, Leo Zero and Dave Little share the psychedelic scenes of the 60s as a key influence, as well as sharing an impressive roster of musicians, clubs and brands for which they have produced artwork. Creating sleeve artwork for the likes of Paul McCartney and unique commissions for Time Out magazine, the trio present us with eye-bending perspectives, shocking colours and a pastiche of styles including Victoriana and Pop Art.
Golden Sun Movement: On takes place at Idea Generation Gallery, London from 20th April 2011 - 8th May 2011.

Publishers Essential Works have teamed up with East London's Idea Generation gallery to offer an intimate look at the life and loves of Syd Barrett; the pioneering songwriter and musical visionary behind Pink Floyd. Never before seen paintings, illustrations, photographs and intimate love letters will be on display until the 10th April 2011, to coincide with the release of new book Barrett: The definitive visual companion.

Barrett attended London's Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts before forming psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd, and returned to art and painting in particular after leaving the band in 1968. This exhibition explores Syd's many creative outlets and gives a whole new perspective on one of the most enigmatic figures in musical history.
