ABOUT VITALOGY FOUNDATION
Vitalogy Foundation is a 501c3 organization founded by Pearl Jam to translate the ethos of their music into tangible positive impacts.

• Justin Hampton, Artist
Justin Hampton will have posters, merch and a preview of his new book, “Visual Feast.” He will be available for photos and signing and will present an exclusive exhibit.
ABOUT JUSTIN HAMPTON
Justin Hampton has been creating powerful and resonant artwork since 1990. He got his start in Seattle as a freelance illustrator under the art direction of graphic designer Art Chantry at The Rocket; a monthly music magazine that was ground zero during the Grunge era. Three decades later he is renowned as one of the most recognizable contemporary rock poster artists and has garnered international attention. His bold line work and sublime color palette mixed with a vivid imagination are unmistakable. His work can be seen in galleries, clubs and homes around the globe. Hampton’s work has been published a multitude of books including the definitive tome of the gig poster genre; The Art of Modern Rock. Justin was also prominently highlighted in the documentary movie ‘American Artifact, the rise of American rock poster art.’ The film is in the permanent collection of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Hampton’s collaborative poster for the movie with his cohorts in Post Neo Explosionism (or PNE) was also added to the museum’s archives. Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) has archived countless numbers of his prints and originals for their permanent museum collection as well.
