The 2014 Bayou Boogaloo Commemorative Poster by artist Jacques Soulas is a Gouache on Paper depiction of a typical day at the Bayou Boogaloo. Seen from the perspective of bicycle riders approaching the festival, the 2014 poster celebrates the relaxed, natural and activity rich environment of Bayou St. John.
The pastoral image is faithfully reproduced as a SilkScreen Print. The poster measures 24″ x 13″ and is printed on Mohawk Superfine art paper in 6 brilliant colors surrounded by a pastel eggshell color border. The edition of 300 signed and numbered prints is sure to be a Sold Out collectible.
Soulas, a French native and Bayou St. John resident, owns Cafe Degas restaurant on Esplanade Avenue not far from the Bayou Boogaloo site. He paints mostly in oils in a style similar to contemporary realism. As a medium, Gouche is similar to watercolor but modified with chalk to add opacity and reflective qualities. The focus on cyclists for this year’s poster is in reference to the long-anticipated ground breaking of the Lafitte Corridor bike path that will connect Bayou St. John to downtown New Orleans.
