This is a fine powerful image by the American artist, Michael Payne, currently of Wilmington, NC. The work depicts an antique Volkswagon mini bus which is iconic in pop culture. The bus is painted frontally in a burn orange and white and is placed against a stark background. It appears to float in the space. It is in excellent condition and is signed by the artist in the lower left corner.
Michael Payne Bio:
Michael Payne, a retired marine biologist, spent much of the past 30 years living and working for the Federal government just outside Washington D.C. Following his 2017 retirement, he moved to Wilmington, N.C. While he has painted off-and-on for his entire life it was not until retirement that Mike was able to devote more time to oil painting. He set up a studio in their garage and neighbors can often find him there with the garage door open working on multiple canvases at a time. In just a few years, Mike has had several pieces accepted at the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Azalea Festival (the 2020 unfortunately was cancelled) and the 2019 and 2020 Art in the Arboretum. Recently an autumn marsh scene was selected to be one of a handful of artists and their paintings to be featured in an article in the November 2020, Wrightsville Beach Magazine. Recently much of his work has focused on a series of vintage VW minivans, wagons and beetles that were part of the "Circle the Wagons" VW show in Wilmington, February 2020. These images have been well received and are unique within the Wilmington art scene.
