This Images includes UFO near the end of the famous Route 66 at Santa Monica.
Long before there was Space X and Mars dreams, there was this exhibition at Ocean Park Amusement part, on the beach in Santa Monica. A pinup girl Hollywood actress or starlet tries to drink a cold Coke. Spills it with a "Wow! Did you see that UFO?" That just buzzed overhead and stops to look at the billboard. All while her unseen friend photographs her by the car at the Art Deco 20's era Signal Gas Stations. The Gas station was a landmark for decades in West Los Angeles. Now long gone.But the Flying Saucers are still here!

The original Painting is playfully exploring Southern California culture and icons of the time. Space, UFO, Santa Monica, 50s Corvette, Olds Pinup like Elvgren, Signal Gas Stations and pretty glamour girls.

HISTORY OF THIS ART: This was the art that was popular with the bomber crews WWII, ( and Korean War). This was the type of image popular for pinups copied on countless leather flight "Bomber Jackets" B-17, B-24 and B-29! Beautiful 1940's & 1950's Commercial, Aviation, Hair Salon, Auto shop and gas station pin-up girl.


Daniel Vancas is a fine artist and fine art publisher of limited editions. Known mostly for his work in pinup, illustration, aviation and automobile art. He was the very first publisher of fine art Elvgren limited editions, and also the very first to commercially offer high-quality Elvgren Replica paintings. He promoted Elvgren for 14 years at his own expense of $1,000,000.

Before Elvgren was rediscovered in the late 1990's and well before most of those popular new books came out, Daniel Vancas Owned and opened several Vanguard Galleries promoting Elvgren! He paid for shows all around the country promoting Elvgren pinup. He was the first to open Elvgren websites in 1993 & 94.


Because an estimated 40% of all of Elvgren's paintings were thrown away and lost, and because the found ones are rarely are for sale, unless offered at $75,000 to $150,000; Daniel Vancas was the first to paint the replicas of Elvgren pinups for the public, using mostly the destroyed, lost and unavailable Elvgren images. In this way, he has faithfully and lovingly preserved many now lost works of art for another generation. At first, he was licensed with B&B, now he owns his own separate Elvgren Intellectual Property.

Over the years he was also licensed by the VARGAS ESTATE and bought and sold many vintage original vintage pinup paintings by Elvgren, Vargas, Petty, Moran and many others. Many celebrities and actors have been to his shows and gallery openings.

Daniel Vancas painted over 238 ELVGREN REPLICA PAINTINGS! He has signed and dated back of each one, so they will never be confused with the original vintage painting by Elvgren. The reason you don't often see them for resale is that the collectors of these paintings keep them. Most are sold through galleries.
