Fringe Poster

The 1990 Fringe Poster was designed by Driller Jet Armstrong.

Driller's poster, in the spirit of friendly competition, takes a tongue in cheek dig at the 'high culture' Adelaide Festival equivalent by elevating the classical renaissance imagery into Fringe going cupids and party going Gods and angels.

Driller, an ex-policeman, launched himself into the art world in 1983. Since then he has exhibited work in Adelaide and interstate.

In 1988, Driller exhibited a sell out show at the Living Arts Centre and was commissioned to bring the Fringe to the east end by painting the distinctive mural on the corner of Frome Road and Rundle Street.
