The sound of casino chips and slot machines, the glitter of millions of rhinestones covering practically nothing at all, the swagger and charm of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin; and in spite of its heat, Vegas has a style and allure that will always remain the epitome of cool. In the Spring of 2016 we met with the owners of the prestigious Regis Galerie located in the Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes in Las Vegas. They wanted a series of Steve Thomas pieces capturing the glamour and history of Las Vegas. Beginning with a series of Vegas icons, Steve created two pieces depicting The Rat Pack and Elvis Presley paired with the iconic sign "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada."
Right away the pieces were a hit, but Steve had another idea, an idea to tell stories that spoke more to the coolness and style of old Vegas, Steve wanted to create a series of pieces that told the stories of Las Vegas as seen through the eyes of an Old Red Cadillac.
Peppered with other images of neon, roulette wheels, pool days and glittering casinos at night, Steve Thomas created a fantastic body of work that captures everything we love about Las Vegas.
Viva Las Vegas!
