Poster Art

Poster Art

One of my earliest artistic influences was the poster art of Peter Max. In the 70's his images were just everywhere. It is an art form that I just love and have always felt drawn to. Since those days I've come to really admire the work of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, and so many other illustrators who used poster and advertising art as a vehicle. This piece, Haitian Madonna, was inspired by the poster art I admire. It was done at least seven years ago, and I didn't promote it or show it much. But digging it out for a recent artisan show reminded me that this is an art form I want to pursue.
