'Martin Sharp was not merely an artist of renown but a celebrity. His fame began in the early 60s with the launch of OZ magazine, followed by his time in the epicentre of Swinging London where he created internationally popular posters and record covers (mainly for Cream, for whom he also wrote a song). On his return to Sydney, he helped create the Yellow House, an artists' colony inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, and threw himself into renovating Luna Park. Based on extensive interviews with Martin and his peers during the last decade of his life, Martin Sharp captures Martin's charismatic character and unconventional lifestyle. It also celebrates some of his most striking images to provide a lively visual account of an unusual life.' (Publication summary)
