I know next to nothing about this postcard; where I got it, how long I’ve had it, even the artwork itself, it’s all a mystery. This unused postcard was manufactured in Amsterdam and bears the legend “A. Carlos das Dores / Bad habit / air brush 1984”.
I do know that I’ve had it for several years, and that I must have liked it back then. I like it now, too, though my tastes today run a little more toward the classic. Nevertheless, this image says “art deco” to me, despite its more modern origin. Another thing I like about this image is that I have a bathtub like this one — although mine is empty just now.
Unfortunately, I’m not able to find any information online about the artist or this artwork. For all I know, A. Carlos das Dores is a street artist who got rooked out of the rights to his image for a pittance.
