Stan Galli is a prolific illustrator whose work crosses many genres: magazine illustration, stamp design, travel posters, marine training manuals, advertising, landscape painting... He has however devoted most of his career to the art of advertising.
Among his most popular drawings is a series commissioned by the American airline company United Airlines. These posters, which promote flights to Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York or Chicago offer a very nice coherence in their visual identity.
This picture takes us to a tropical setting in Hawaii where tourists are swinging canoes. The popular destination of Diamond Head can be seen in the background.
His work is exhibited atu at the Pentagon or the New York Historical Society and the Grand Central Gallery in New York.
