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 Powerscourt covered bridge, which crosses the Chateauguay river between Elgin and Hinchinbrooke. Built in 1861 and was fully restored in 2009, the bridge was designated a National Historic Site in 1984. This poster belongs to a series from Blanchet's inaugural Montreal exhibition Autour du Monde/Around the World avec/with Pascal Blanchet.
