Art print: RIP Sherita, Brooklyn's Pink Icon

Art print: RIP Sherita, Brooklyn's Pink Icon

PriceFrom $10.00

One print of Brooklyn's late Sherita, painted in watercolor by Quinne Myers and printed on lustre photo paper. Available in 4"x6" or 9"x12".


Sherita was NYC's fuel oil advertisement icon. This lovely lady was painted on a huge billboard above the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Classon Avenue in central Brooklyn. With her bow-tied oil squirt hair, baby pink skin, and striking old-fashioned makeup, she was beloved by many generations of Brooklyners, even as she withstood graffiti and other damage. In 2024, she was painted over during rezoning* on Atlantic Avenue.


Banksy (allegedly) once said: "You die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time." My hope is that this print, my tribute to Sherita, allows her to live on forever in our hearts and homes, no matter where we live.


RIP Sherita. We love you!! 🙏🕯️✨🕯️🙏

  • Giclée Prints versus Inkjet Prints?

    Giclee prints are specifically designed to be as close to the original artwork as possible. Ours are printed locally by a fine art printer on museum quality, acid free Innova Soft White Cotton 280gsm paper. They are signed by the artist, and specially designed for the fine art collector. These are shipped for free via USPS Priority.


    Our inkjet prints are designed for art lovers who want gorgeous wall art at a good price. Ours are printed in upstate NY on lustre photo paper and shipped directly to you. Inkjet prints are shipped for free via USPS First Class.


    Both are beautiful, high-quality print options—It just depends on what you're personally looking for!
