Art Print Description:

Even if you’ve never eaten at the Majestic Diner in Atlanta, there’s something about Art Deco architecture that’s likely to bring an unconscious smile to your face. And I think that’s particularly true about Streamline Moderne, of which the Majestic Diner is an example. The Majestic Diner has a sign that says it’s been serving customer since 1929. That’s apparently in more than one location as the Briarcliff Plaza in the Poncey-Highlands neighborhood dates to 1939.

As anyone who has ever called Atlanta home knows, it’s a city that’s constantly rebuilding itself. Blink and the city changes. That fact makes the Majestic Diner even more special. There’s just something cool knowing that people have been having meals in that same place decade after decade while the city outside changes. There’s something about the Majestic that reminds me in surreal way of Rod Taylor sitting in The Time Machine in the 1960 film. While he remains unchanging, the world outside goes rushing past.

When I sat down to work on this Majestic Diner artwork, I knew it had to be a night scene. Just look at all that gorgeous vintage neon signage! The Majestic was simply meant for an Atlanta after dark print. And in a way, it’s a nod to all those late nights past that Atlanta party-people have washed up at the majestic for a late night meal. Are you one of those folks? Does this little corner of Atlanta remind you of good times past?

And that classic 50’s Chevy on the street outside was definitely a nod to the long history of the Majestic. The streets would be very crowded indeed if I had even done a car for every decade that that cool old diner has stood there. There’s just something about mid-century Americana that completes this scene for me.

I would love to hear what drew you to this particular Atlanta artwork. Is it simply down to the cool Art Deco styling and the vivid neon signage? Or do you have personal connections to this particular landmark?
