“Upon first seeing his photography of the Hollywood Sign, I was awed by VanCleave’s artistry, compelling me to contemplate the icon which I’ve seen a thousand times before but which never before looked so fresh. The details, perspective and colors come together in ways which cast a new light on this familiar landmark – a fantastic creative achievement worthy of celebration in The Gallery at The Art Institute of California Hollywood.”

Behind the Hollywood Sign Fine Art Photography Series Released by Artist Ted VanCleave

Miami, Florida, August 20, 2012 – Award winning artist Ted VanCleave today released his new fine art photography series Behind the Hollywood Sign.This new art series presents the famous Hollywood Sign from a unique perspective rarely available to the public.

My new series provides a rare view of the Hollywood Sign that is unknown to most people. It’s a bit edgy, allowing you to see the structure of the Sign with it’s braces and corrugated facade. If you look closely you can see security cameras and maintenance ladders mounted to it. States VanCleave; From behind the Sign you can see greater Los Angeles and Lake Hollywood and you can even see helicopters flying by. Of course The Sign is more than the sum of it’s parts. It’s more than giant letters overlooking LA. It has a life, a life of it’s own. And this series allows you to see Los Angeles from the perspective of the Hollywood Sign, from the top of Mt Lee, 1,800 ft high staring down on the sprawling flatlands of Los Angeles, from downtown LA to the Pacific Ocean.
