Michael Schwab Framed 20 X 30 Poster
For 20x30 Unframed or 40x60 Canvas, see below
Michael Schwab is a well-known Bay Area designer whose works for the Golden Gate National Recreational area have become iconic. His signature style employs saturated colors and plays on positive and negative space, often reducing the imagery to simple dramatic abstractions.
This piece reflects his personal connection to the bike itself. Schwab is a bike aficionado who lives and rides in the "public" hills and spaces of Marin County. He adores the bike as object, and approaches it from a personal perspective in his piece by capturing the bike from an angle of worship, putting it on a pedestal aesthetically, reducing it to its essence, but asking us to look differently at the form. When was the last time you saw a monochromatic blue bike in a sea of black?
San Francisco Bay Area Michael Schwab focuses on the interplay of positive and negative space to create his signature graphic style, including several iconic American posters and logos. His clients include Amtrak, the National Park Service, Major League Baseball, Muhammad Ali, Pebble Beach, Robert Redford and the San Francisco Opera and America's Cup. His work resides in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the California Palace of the Legion of Honor and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.
