Multi media on wood, 60×40
Canadian artist Sylvain Prevost presents his ‘’CAR-TUNED’’ series. The multifaced concept consists of large format acrylic paintings with incrusted 3D sculpted and or molded elements ex: hands, arms and musical instruments. The dimensions start at 40×60.
The transposition technic consists of using a cartoon character in lieu of the original artist. In the first painting called ‘’Bugs Springsteen’’ we see Bugs Bunny reproducing Bruce Springsteen’s iconic ‘’Born in the USA’’ album cover. Bug’s right hand is sculpted at then molded to be finalized in resin. The hand is then fixed to the 40×60 wood panel and holds a Fender telecaster just as Bruce Springsteen has on the original album cover. Please note that the Fender Telecaster is a simple but functional replica known as a ‘’parts caster’’ and is not meant to be removed in this case.
Other pieces from the same series are available or in production such as ‘’Mickey McCartney’’ (the Beatles), ‘’Bugs Berry’’ (Chuck Berry), ‘’Angus Duck’’ (AC-DC) and ‘’Scooby Townsend’’ (The Who) to name a few.
Custom orders for this series are available as well. In the first case, a removeable mechanism has been created to facilitate access to the customer’s guitar (A limited edition metallic pink 1998 Gibson Les Paul). Sylvain chose the Pink Panther to portray the collector’s favorite guitarist ‘’Slash’’ from Guns’N’Roses in this piece.
This original series will please the music lover and Pop Art collector and will certainly leave no one indifferent. Ideal for large living areas and music and game rooms.
