Steve Banks
Promised Land (of Sky Blue Waters), Brightly Colored Pop Art, Mixed Media

2021

$3,500

About

Using bold imagery and a bright color palette, Steve Banks takes pieces of popular culture to create this work entitled "Promised Land (of Sky Blue Waters)". He creates a scene with animated comic book characters and imaginative uses of commercial products, in this case by using the Hamm's Logo as the center piece. The three-dimensional quality of the piece adds to the overall aesthetic. Please contact the gallery for framing options.
