Artwork Description

Acrylic on paper

Signed on the front.

Recalling travel posters of days gone by this bright, cheery work will light up any home. Ukuleles and hibiscus spring readily to mind when thinking of Hawaii, but do you know there are mermaids there too? Alluringly clad only in leis they beckon to delirious sailors, and to unsuspecting tourists. The nerve! Book 'em, Danno.

But I digress. Hawaiian Siren's bold blues and greens truly evoke the tropics, and its dark blue and yellow block lettering is typical of the advertising material used to attract tourism way back when. I feel it won't be long before Bonchustown is creating more artwork in a similar vein and with more of that same lettering like the labelling on a crate of tropical fruit. What will it say next time? Perhaps there will be a complementary work to this one.

Do you love old advertising like I do? Then you understand the motivation behind the creation of Hawaiian Siren, a concept steeped in feel-good nostalgia!
