You’ve got to know the rules before you can break ’em. Otherwise, it’s no fun.
— Sonny Crockett, Miami Vice
The 1980s produced some great pin-up art styles. Some of the colors that were used were pastels in pink and blue hues. This gave art from the era a distinct look, with rain-soaked streets glittering the ultra-brilliance of neon signs. Take a look at Grand Theft Auto: Vice City or the retro styling of Stranger Things to see it remembered today.
Tristan Thompson captures that 80s vibe with this perfect piece. Thompson has been on the scene since 2013, doing personal projects like this creation as well as work for big brands like Harley-Davidson or the X-Games. This pin-up that he’s titled “Miami” makes me wish that I could be behind the wheel of a Ferrari Testarossa wearing my Ray-Bans and blasting Phil Collins on the city’s streets.
