Vegas-themed piece to debut at The Shag Store at the Palms Casino Resort, Aug. 25

Artist Josh Agle, aka Shag, will personalize limited-edition print “The High Roller Suite”

On Thursday, Aug. 25 at a special event from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Shag Store inside the Palms Casino Resort, Josh Agle, aka Shag, will debut and personalize “The High Roller Suite,” an exclusive piece he created specially to capture mid-century Las Vegas.

“The High Roller Suite” is a silk screen print on black paper, measuring 26 by 38 inches, and boasts Shag’s signature artistic style of 11 vibrant colors. Each print is hand signed by Shag and numbered with only 200 available. At the Aug. 25 event, which is open to the public and requires no RSVP, Shag will personalize the limited-edition prints for attendees.

 

On what led to the Las Vegas themed piece, Shag said, “The High Roller Suite was inspired by the vintage signage on the Strip that I remembered from a childhood trip to Las Vegas in the 1970s. Most of the signs from the ‘50s and ‘60s were still intact at that time, but the acts appearing on the casino marquees were pure fantasy. I researched to make sure each entertainer depicted in the piece appeared at the respective casino with their name on the marquee, but I’m sure there was not one single night in Vegas when all these headliners performed.”

 

Shag has plans to do another version of this image with present day casinos and attractions like the Eiffel Tower, Palms, New York skyline, and High Roller Ferris wheel. He also has other Vegas-themed ideas on the drawing board, including a depiction of Evel Knievel’s famous motorcycle jump of the Caesars Palace fountains.

 

In addition to the merchandise signing and a meet & greet with Shag on Aug. 25, guests will have the opportunity to explore the artist’s second retail location that opened at the Palms Casino Resort in May while enjoying complimentary cocktails.

 

Shag is a painter, designer and illustrator with a distinctive artistic style that draws from mid-century modern advertising illustration. His work depicting stylized urbanites is imbued with irony, attitude, and a sly sense of humor. Solo exhibitions of Shag’s work have been held in the U.S., Europe, Japan, Australia, and South America. Shag has also designed projects for numerous companies, especially in the entertainment industry, including The Walt Disney Company, the Coca-Cola Company, DC Comics, Cirque Du Soleil, and the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas as well as a 100-foot-long mural in the Georgia Aquarium.
