We commissioned renowned New Orleans artist James Michalopolous to create our 2018 label art, aculinary-inspired piece entitled “Fish Swish.”
Born in 1951 in Pennsylvania, James was drawn to New Orleans in 1981 in search of hippie bohemian culture in America. He began sketching artists and musicians, houses and street corners. Fascinated with the duality of beauty and decay, he adopted the architecture of the city as his muse. He captured the spirit and the essence of his subject in layer upon layer of thick impasto paint. This body of work, infused with Michalopolous’ singular style, came to represent for the world the gritty, vibrant, alluring image of the Big Easy; and it established him as the most influential living artist in the region.
