This original acrylic painting is hand-painted, measures about 19″x30″, and is hand-signed “Axel”. It served as a store sign promoting a unique AXEL shop in Woodstock, NY in late 1970s – early 1980s. Before his permanent move to NYC. This painting has a distinctive, colorful psychedelic-style associated with Axel. It is good age appropriate condition with apparent corner bends, surface scuffs and an edge split as can be expected with a painting that is nearly Half-A-Century-Old. Please see pics associated with this listing for actual condition. The card illustration features what appears to be a rendering of a winged-pupa-stage butterfly with celestial motifs – dated “77”. Influenced by mentors such as Salvador Dali and H. His Axelizations included: acrylic paintings, sculptures, blood paintings, textile designs, with an interest in a multitude of curiosities. He has a colorful reputation which is reflected in his imaginative works of art. Several of this series of paintings where created by loading a paintbrush with several colors at one time…. Applying them to the surface, and then using paint straight out of the tube to for added texture. The butterfly is a motif often seen in Axel’s work. The butterfly symbolizes metamorphosis (change), Freedom. Escape and the out-stretched wings are a Christ-like reference. Axel lived and created his art in Lodi, NJ; Albany, New York (Cosmic Butterfly Shop); Woodstock, NY (Cosmic Butterfly Shop); and New York City. I first met and worked with him in his Albany/Schenectady days at the Cosmic Butterfly and continued my friendship with him in his Woodstock and early NYC days.
