"Art of the month - Casablanca"
A good friend of mine is opening a Cuban restaurant/bar,
with a not so Cuba name called "Casablanca". If I think about Cuba,
although I have never been there, I think about cigars, Hemingway, cars from
the fifties , music and bars. In a way the thoughts about Casablanca are not
far from that. Not in these days ( I have been there), but it's all about the
movie with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart , with the famous words:
"play it again Sam…"
So I have made some paintings for the restaurant with an
atmosphere of 60 years ago, indeed in black and white , oriental surroundings ,
what could be expected if you walk in a bar of those days.
The 2 larger paintings , oil on canvas, are 100 by 150
cm. Humphrey Bogart himself measures 100 by 50 cm, also oil on canvas. The
fourth one has not much to do with Casablanca, but since she is also black and
white , I throw in the painting too, oil and gold on canvas : 100 by 50 cm.
If you require more information about these paintings,
don't hesitate to write an email….
