Cartoon Cowboys Invade Chinatown

Cartoon Cowboys Invade Chinatown
by Rich Richardson
June 4 through June 26, 2010

“This series of 1970’s cartoon cowboys and their rugged individualism are juxtaposed with eastern philosophy buzz-words and created specifically for this neighborhood. I love the collision of East and West on the streets of Chinatown where I have lived and worked for many years, and am fortunate enough to have help with the translations from friends in the neighborhood.”

These four-by-seven foot scrolls serve as a bridge between neighborhood galleries and Chinatown residents, Eastern calligraphy and western pop culture. There are four pieces made with acrylic, shellac, wood stain & velvet flocking on paper and available for $850. per piece.
