“Behind the Hollywood Sign” Fine Art Photographry Series Released by Artist Ted VanCleave

Miami, FL, August 18, 2012 --(PR.com)-- 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.

To crowdfund a gallery exhibition in Los Angeles of large scale prints, VanCleave opened a pop-up store on Kickstarter offering wholesale pricing on select limited edition prints for supporter pledge rewards.

VanCleave continues; “My new series, Behind The Hollywood Sign, features 18 new images of the Sign as it has never been seen before, behind the facade, the unseen side, yet still filled with history and mystery.”

“The Hollywood Sign is more than a sign. It's more than a symbol. It's a powerful international icon that's larger than life both literally and figuratively. It's about imagination. It's about dreams. It personifies the movie and TV industries and celebrities and movie stars, and it has a power that draws us to it like a magnet.”
