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, depicting styles of interest and trend. These paintings show items that they 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', scissors, etc. Painted on plywood with recycled wood bracing strips on the back. It is signed by the artist 'Paps' and is in colors of red, blue, pink, white, wine and black with the words 'Classic Coiffure'. The size is approx. 40" x 24" x 1". The painting does have signs of age and a feel of naiveness, but an excellent example of an African Folkart painting.
