• Taxi [UK Version] Wrapped Canvas [HD Video $8.00]


    The concept for “Taxi” was inspired by one of New York's favorite sons, Mr. Al Pacino. While working on her parody series of quotes and famous words the artist remembered a scene from the documentary "Looking for Richard" by Mr. Pacino about the play by William Shakespeare “King Richard the Third”. Near the end of the documentary Mr. Pacino, playing the role of King Richard is in the battlefield and exclaims “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.” Ms. Peppers thought in this day and age he would wish for a taxi.

    This black and white 18 x 36 x 1 inch wrapped canvas is for the Art In Motion Typography of the United Kingdom version of Taxi, where an apartment is referred to as a flat. The watermark will not appear on the canvas. A Certificate of Authenticity, numbered, dated and signed by the artist with the recipient’s name accompanies this. The series has other versions in English, Italian, French and Spanish.
