Modern Mucha

Kelly McGuire's avatar Kelly McGuire

This piece was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Alphonse Mucha. Mucha was an Art Nouveau era painter and decorative artist known for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs. This "Modern Mucha" features Michigan's best loved beverage, which is of course, beer. The design elements are influenced by Mucha's advertising art which commonly included rich floral design elements. I have included an updated design motif that includes a hops design as well as modern "metal" gears and knobs. The blank space below is reserved for a hand-written menu or list of specials. This 15" x 22.5" (approx 21 x 28.5" framed) piece was created with graphite, ink and acrylic on arches watercolor paper. Poster prints will be available for sale.
