"Stage Elvis" is an original linocut created by Toronto artist Frederica Tomas, who often uses pop icons in her art. With Elvis in motion, microphone in hand, this linocut evokes days gone by. The linocut was printed onto japanese paper using a vandercook SP15 proof press and rubber based inks, then painted with watercolours. This art piece, measuring 5" x 6" is under glass in a solid soldered frame ready to hang.
Artist Frederica Tomas was born in Toronto, Canada and attended the Ontario College of Art, where she studied printmaking and won a scholarship for Book Arts. After graduation she pursued her artistic muse creating linocuts which are primarily portraits of Saints, Sinners and Strange Beasts, with a bit of Pop Culture commentary. Her linocuts are printed onto japanese paper using a vandercook SP15proof press and rubber based inks, then painted with watercolours. Frederica lives in Toronto with Jim and her canine companion, Sam. She listens to Bob Dylan everyday.
