Carlo of Hollywood was an artist who produced art work from about 1955 through to the early 1980's. According to the info I read on http://carloofhollywood.net/blog/
There is not much information on the mysterious "Carlo of Hollywood" but what is known is that Carlo probably sketched out or designed the artworks but had a bunch of other artists who executed the works which he signed or were signed with his name, much like Jeff Koons or Andy Warhol. I have a theory that "Carlo" did not exist but was a fabrication, like "C. Jare", created to legitimize factory produced art.
I like the cityscapes he executed but I will admit that brown is not really a favorite colour. I would guess that my Carlo was created in 1966, from the pencil date on the stretcher bar.
Sadly, my painting did not come with one of the cool forced perspective frames that are a hallmark of his exotica paintings. Below are some examples of the forced perspective frames.
There is a Facebook group for people who have Carlo of Hollywood art, as well (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=114698658552668&v=wall)
