I love these paintings by Chris Consani. You have classic Hollywood represented by Humphrey Bogart,Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and James Dean.
Here's how art.com describes his work.
Chris Consani lends dark allure and masculine perspective to movie fantasy settings, such as Marilyn Monroe cavorting with Bogie, James Dean, and Elvis in bar scenes and smoky pool halls. At other times, his art poignantly captures the glamorous, cinematic, retro appeal of Old Hollywood. His work has appeared in the Society of Illustrators, Library of Congress and other publications and exhibits. He is known throughout the entertainment industry for his movie posters and album covers.
I've got this one hanging up in my office work room.
I'm a huge Elvis fan so this kind of art work really works for me. I've got almost every Elvis Presley song there is on CD.
