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 Montreal’s 107-year old Parc-Extension (or Park Ex) neighborhood. Park Ex is a multi-faceted community filled with rich historical and cultural detail that is nestled in the west end of the Villeray-St Michel-Park Extension borough. This poster belongs to a series from Blanchet's second collaborative exhibition at L'Affichiste that focus on a variety of Montreal neighborhoods.
