Artist: Thomas, Steve
This poster is hand-signed by the artist.
We found Steve Thomas in cyberspace - a place he evidently knows very well - and loved his posters so much that we asked him if we could sell them, and voila! The perfect partnership. Originally born in Ontario, he now operates out of the U.S. as a freelance illustrator who happens to have a love for vintage poster, propaganda and product art from the early 20th century and an interest in retro-futuristic art.
This particular poster features Flamingo, a sculpture by Alexander Calder which has become synonymous with the city of Chicago. Made of steel and painted in a colour now known as 'Calder red', it is stationary yet moves with air currents.
