Signed poster for Jim Dine’s 1970 exhibition of Complete Graphics at Gallery Mikro, Berlin. Printed on fine paper with the same plates used to print Dine’s Scissors and Rainbow 1969 edition. Unlike mass-produced inkjet printed posters, this original vintage poster was designed and signed by the artist, and hand-printed in a limited edition.

This poster features one of Jim Dine’s trademark tools: a pair of scissors hangs on a long thread from Jim Dine’s name. In the original Scissors and Rainbow edition, the thread spells out “Scissors” – in this original exhibition poster, the word “scissors” is replaced by the artist’s name. A colorful, small rainbow is labeled “Rainbow” in grey cursive. At the base of the poster, bold black text reads “Complete Graphics April 1970 Galerie Mikro Berlin”.


The Artist

Jim Dine

Jim Dine is an American pop artist who was born in Ohio in 1935 and was known for his painting, drawing, sculpting and printmaking. He is considered to be a part of the Neo-Dada movement, a style that opposed the emotional expressions of Abstract Impressionism and instead, denies aesthetics by using mundane subjects and focusing on performance. Dine was first recognised by the art industry when he displayed ‘Happenings’ a type of performance art in collaboration with the musician John Cage. In 1959, it was exhibited over six days in an environment or installation in New York City’s Reuben Gallery, where features of light, sound, projects and viewer participation all played a part in the display.
