About The Poster: Razzia is one of a handful of modern artists who have chosen posters as their form of expression. His work uses strong colors and imagery, often with Art Deco overtones, to easily and effectively convey the advertising and marketing message.
Razzia (whose real name is Gerard Courbouleix Deneriaz) began his career as a successful photographer working with "rock & roll giants" like Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and Pink Floyd. Tired of professional photography field, he turned to graphic design and over the past 25 years, he has created innumerable images of fast cars, fast women, and posters like this one, for the Louis Vuitton-sponsored America's Cup. He lives and works in Paris.
Poster is in overall very good condition. (Foxing from previous framing on all extreme edges which will disappear when poster is re-framed.)
America's Cup trivia: The America's Cup, affectionately known as the "Auld Mug", is a sailing trophy awarded to the winner of the America's Cup match races. One yacht, known as the defender, represents the yacht club that currently holds the America's Cup and the second yacht, known as the challenger, represents the yacht club that is challenging for the cup. The timing of each match is determined by an agreement between the defender and the challenger. The America's Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy.
