Visionary and Psychedelic Artists, The Fool

Who was the Fool

Visionary and psychedelic artist, Marijke Koger was one of two original members of the Fool. The Fool started on an island and grew in London in the 60's. The Fool's name came from tarot card Arcana Zero. It is said to represent truth. They started out by selling their psychedelic paintings in galleries in and around London. Original members were Marijke and Simon Posthuma. The group grew with Marijke's art school friend Josie Leeger. Followed by Karl Ferris and Barry Finch. They were hired by Cream’s manager to design costumes and paint the bands instruments. Their painted instruments are all famous now. Eventually they started designing clothes for The Beatles, The Hollies and other rock bands along with psychedelic acoustic guitars. They are also famous for painting a three story mural on the side of The Beatles Apple store in London.

Marijke and Simon moved to Hollywood and became a duo once again. Posthuma now lives in Amsterdam and Koger is in the Los Angeles area. Finch and Leeger got married and had six children. Sadly Leeger died of a stroke in 1991.
