Gary Michaels

Print Maker

I have been taking pictures since 1960 and have been a printmaker since 1968 when my partner and I founded Gemini Enterprises ( soon to become Gemini Rising ). We specialized in iconic silk screened black light posters of popular culture images. We followed our conscience and beliefs and published controversial images as well as simple rock & roll images. We fought a few battles, won some and lost some. We were good enough and fortunate enough to sell over 4,000,000 posters in our brief existence. I continue to print what I believe in, and the runs are now very small.
