Around the World with Pascal Blanchet
May 9th 2019 - June 9th 2019
L’Affichiste, Canada’s only vintage poster gallery, and Montreal-based illustrator Pascal Blanchet, are proud to announce Autour du monde avec Pascal Blanchet/Around the World with Pascal Blanchet, a poster exhibition, designed to celebrate L’Affichiste’s new, larger locale.
Over the past decade, L’Affichiste has become a unique Old Montreal destination, known for its collectable posters, as well as for its support of local and contemporary graphic designers and poster artists. Pascal Blanchet, a charming Montrealer with incredible graphic and sartorial panache, is a multimedia artist whose creative pursuits include work for The New Yorker, Penguin Books, The National Post and others, as well as graphic novels, album covers and collaborations with directors both here and abroad.
Karen Etingin, owner of L’Affichiste explains that “Pascal’s designs reflect an elegance and refinement which is inspired by Art Deco masters, but which is his alone. His visual language is rich with references to times past, far-off locations and romance.” Etingin continues, “I have wanted to work with Pascal for many years, so our expansion provides the perfect opportunity to showcase his works in our brand-new space. Also, as Pascal has never before sold posters in Montreal, it’s a first for both of us – you could call it a win-win!”
Cocktails and drinks from Wabasso Gin, Creemore Springs and Y Kombucha will be offered to guests, partners and clients on May 9, 2019 from 18:00-21:00 and the artist will be on-hand to discuss his work.
The exhibition will continue through June 9, 2019.
