" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
Another graphic power piece from the mind of Dick Tahsin who worked as a graphic illustrator for Ralph Lauren from 1986 to 1996. This roll/ski neck top features striking monochrome graphics juxtaposed against a technicolor fading logo. The subjects represent the extreme outdoors athletes which RL has an affinity with ; a mountain biker astride a suspension bike that features ‘R LAUREN’ graphics on its downtube. Behind him is another bold explorer..a mountaineer /climber complete with ice pick and back pack, off to scale the summit of a mountain. The simple POLO lettering features colors fading from hot pink,to red,orange and yellow. This is a vibrant and classic piece that left artist Joseph Vaughan little choice but to recreate in miniature..
