Have a passion for Pop Art? Love a good thrill? Or maybe you are just searching for some excitement slightly off the beaten path? Ben Steele’s playful “Scream Motel” brings together Munch’s “The Scream” and Hitchcock’s “Psycho” in radiant and glorious neon light. Certainly Mr. Hitchcock would never have considered changing the name of the Bates Motel in the classic thriller, but we wouldn’t it past him to sneak a subliminal glimpse of this image in some one’s rearview mirror.
Ben Steele’s “Scream Motel” is not, contrary to popular opinion, the product of an unbalanced mind. Rather it comes from one that endlessly ponders the possible relationships between art history, pop culture, advertising and modern life. Vibrant and striking, this Fine Art Giclèe Canvas says as much about the unique outlook of the person who hangs it as the person who painted it. Enjoy!
