"The original image for this print was taken in 2005 in Ibiza, Spain. I wanted to mixed this incredible man made industrial brass helmet with the soft and elegant female body. I was living in Ibiza at the time and had the idea in my head for a year or so but could not find the helmet until a friend of mine located one. I was leaving the island in 2 days and had to hurry to find a model, so in a dash I called a friend and told her the idea and she loved it. The original art study for the flag mix was in January, 2012. Since creating this American flag (Yankee) piece I have made several flags: i.e Union Jack (U.K.), Rising Sun (Japanese), Italian, Soviet and I have been commissioned to create a Canadian, Israel, French and Texas flags." - Victor Spinelli

ABOUT Victor Spinelli:
"In the early 1990′s I became a commercial hot air balloon pilot-instructor and started a rag tag but successful Hot Air Balloon sky diving and bungee jumping business. I actually own a World Record (unofficial) for having the oldest lady, Grace Tall, then 75 years old, to bungee jump from my balloon as I was piloting. See Ripley’s Believe it or Not. Moving forward, with camera in hand, I have for the past 17 years split my time between New York, the Mediterranean and California and have evolved my artistry into several multi-media directions by working on films, commercials, music videos, documentaries and print campaigns. After working for three summers in Mykonos, Greece photographing the island life, I was drawn to another island in the Mediterranean: Ibiza, Spain. Now Shanghai, China is calling me. As her resurrection begins as Asia's financial powerhouse, my work lands at her doorstep at the perfect time. A venture capital firm has teamed up with me and we have just opened 'Spinelli Galleries Shanghai' in March." – Victor Spinelli
