Large and colorful hot-air balloons fly over a countryside scene into a vibrant sky dotted by cottony white clouds. "It's a classic scene from the Belle Époque era," shares artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider. Part of his Pulp art series, this piece represents the bygone era with its quirky typeface and an adventure fantasy theme. This piece is a diptych, composed of two separate 36 x 24-inch panels.

Rick "Marlowe" Schneider

Leland, North Carolina

Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider creates mixed-media collages, combining the use of handmade paper with a raised dimensional technique. "This process produces distinct shadows which make the imagery jump off the canvas," says Rick. His work is a contemporary nod to 1930s and 1940s graphic design. By bringing together bold color combinations and patterns with quirky typefaces, Rick's work embodies the fun and elegant movie posters of Hollywood's Golden Age. Inspiration for his narratives comes from his father who was a pulp fiction writer. His loft studio in Leland, North Carolina, houses his archive of pulp magazines and stories from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. "My workspace is cluttered with canvases and handmade paper that I have imported from Thailand. It may be impossible to walk around but the atmosphere is perfect for creating."
