Hosies Hotel Mural, Melbourne Colour Print
Hosie's Hotel, designed by Mussen Mackay & Potter, and completed in 1956, has architectural importance within Victoria for its use of varied volumetric forms, and use of colour, for which it is practically unique amongst central city high rise of the early post-war era. The work is the first major abstract mural produced in Melbourne and occupies a most prominent, though sadly neglected city corner.
Acknowledgement: Our illustration is a stylised interpretation of the original mural created by Richard Beck circa.1955.
Harper and Charlie's illustration of the Hosies Hotel Mural in Melbourne is printed on premium grade Ilford 180 gsm matte paper with commercial grade pigment inks.
The distinctive look of Harper and Charlie’s art is inspired by vintage printmaking techniques, such as the use of coarse halftone screens, slipped registrations, colour bleed, scuffs and scratches etc which add to the look and feel of each design. Please note these elements have been applied to the art on purpose and are not printing defects in the final design.
The total print size as specified in the product listing includes the shown border around the design as part of the finished image. Please note, the width of the border on each design varies with each print size.
