Charles Pachter’s work frequently explores iconic images of Canada that are both patriotic and playful.

Here, with an image of the classic TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) streetcars, this work epitomizes Pacther’s version of Canadian Pop Art.

Over the course of Pachter's long and fantastic career he has revisited the motif of the Toronto streetcar; each time finding an impressionable and charming representation of one of Toronto's icons. Take a look at some other examples here and here

While Pachter’s work shares some characteristics with Jim Dine, David Hockney and even Andy Warhol, his style is uplifting, singular and uniquely Canadian.

This work is an early and unique work by Charles Pachter. It is an affordable work on paper and a great piece for young collectors. 

Pachter holds the prestigious position of Officer of the Order of Canada, and is also a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee medal.

Additional images available on request.
