lowlevel-art

Etsy user LowLevel has made an awesome set of colorful stenciled paintings, each one featuring a historical icon: Fidel Castro, Jack Kerouac, Frank Sinatra, Hunter S. Thompson, etc. Each icon is stenciled relief with an appropriate background, and the visual puns are numerous. The colors are funky and retro, and they all have the gritty feel of a propaganda poster. Many are emblazoned with appropriate quotes or verbiage from the featured individual. The subjects span decades and genres, so take a gander, you’ll likely find something you’d appreciate. They’re remarkably affordable, and you’re getting a piece that’s unique, rather than something 140,596 other people have purchased in the poster section of Ikea.

There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
