Dark Hall Mansion is most pleased to welcome artist Nicole Gustafsson and her unique take on Peanuts, Valentine’s Day, the charm of old school homemade valentines, oh, and love!
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide, will release Nicole Gustafsson’s “Snoopy Valentine,” a charming ode to Valentine’s Day by way of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts gang. Her lovely and subtle original piece is fully painted by hand and is at once all Peanuts and very much Nicole; from the quite impressive cutting skills of everyone’s favorite beagle to the charm of old friends in a most unique setting, it’s Nicole’s touches such as Charlie’s classic zigzag shirt pattern as backdrop or his relaxed and faithful pose awaiting his valentine on a mailbox- shaped handle that not only gently nods at classic Peanuts films like “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown” but references one of Charles Schulz’s most poignant and overarching of themes, love, and its endless complexity.
Nicole was delighted to work on an official Peanuts piece:
“Growing up it seems like there was always aspects of Peanuts that were part of our lives. Watching Peanuts TV specials over the holidays and hanging little ornaments of Snoopy and characters on our Christmas tree, or the time I got a really big valentine with Snoopy holding a heart. So when I was asked to create a piece based on Peanuts, I immediately thought of all these fun times I had with my family and friends.”
The editions will be available in a Standard, Variant, and extremely select Canvas edition of just 10, with 5 canvases based on each colorway.
