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 shows a typical view of the Veneto region in North-Western Italy. In addition to the city of Venice, the area is known for its grapes - producing wines such as Prosecco and Valpolicella. In a tribute to this tradition, the artist has included grape leaves in the foreground of this image. 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.
