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 travel poster highlights Montreal distinctive features - both civic and natural. It depicts the Place d'Armes monument to Samuel de Champlain in the foreground, and recedes to include buildings in the Old Port and modern office towers. Champlain's figure is framed by Mont Royal and its famous cross, resulting in a monumental impression of the city and its most recognizable landmarks. It 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.
