West African Barber Shop Sign.
Signs like these are found in many neighborhoods and towns in different African countries and also parts of the Carribbean, painted in acrylics and oils, depicting hair styles of interest and trend also items that the shop or salon may sell and services they offer.
This sign is of a hair style with equipment and products that may have been available, the cut, maybe a shave and some tools to help you maintain the style at home, a 'fro comb', comb, scissors, etc. Painted on plywood with recycled wood bracing strips on the back. It is signed by the artist 'Paps' and painted in colors of blues, reds, purples, wines and black, with the words ' Le Big Coiffeur'. The size is approx. 40" x 24" x 1". The painting is vintage and does have signs of age and a feel of naiveness, but a beautiful example of African Folk Art.
