Artist: Blanchet, Pascal
Pascal Blanchet is a Montreal-based multi-media artist whose graphic works include collaborations with The New Yorker, Penguin Books, and The National Post. His depictions of familiar cityscapes and exotic locales recall art deco masterworks but are grounded in a contemporary vision of the world. Blanchet employs a bold colour palette in his images, which is complemented by references to times gone by and results in a combined sense of nostalgia and romance.
This vintage-inspired poster depicts the St. Lawrence river in Winter and highlights this waterway's important place in domestic and international shipping. The St. Lawrence seaway's locks and channels connect the Atlantic ocean and the North American Great Lakes and sees more than 50 million tons of cargo pass through its waters on an annual basis. This poster belongs to a series from Blanchet's inaugural Montreal exhibition Autour du Monde/Around the World avec/with Pascal Blanchet.
This poster is hand signed by the artist and is in excellent condition. It is ready to be framed - a perfect addition to any home or office.
