Australia's Most Controversial Futurist

Richard Neville has been a practising futurist since 1963, when he launched a magazine that widened the boundaries of free speech on two continents. In the 70's and 80's, both as an author and social commentator, his discussions of trends, innovation, the new consumer, info-tech and globalisation reached a mass TV audience. In the 90's, Richard became a full time futurist, both in print and on conference stages.

 

As an artist, cartoonist, songwriter and film-maker, Martin Sharp has made tremendous contributions to Australian and international culture since the early 60s, and he is hailed as Australia's foremost Pop artist.

The "acknowledged king of the UK poster scene in the 60's", his famous psychedelic posters of Dylan, Donovan and others rank as classics of the genre, alongside the work of Stanley Mouse, Rick Griffin, Hapshash & The Coloured Coat and Milton Glaser. His covers, cartoons and illustrations were a central feature of OZ magazine, both in Australia and in London. Martin also co-wrote one of Cream's most famous songs, and in the '70s he became a champion of singer Tiny Tim, and of Sydney's embattled Luna Park.
