Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

When I worked for Polo Ralph Lauren, I traveled around the country, looking for antiques and props for the stores. In the south, I would often come across old hand-painted signs from barbershops, showing the various styles of black hairstyles. I had forgotten all about them until I saw a music video where one scene was filmed in a barbershop, and there was one of those signs on the wall. I was inspired to paint this, and to include celebrities as the models, since they seem to be todays style icons.

This one is huge. 48 x 48, on gallery-wrapped canvas. I'm charging a lot less than normal for that size painting, because I realize this might not be for all markets!
