SHALOM Y'ALL, original painting by New Orleans Folk Artist Dr. Bob.  

Dig: LOUIE'S JUKE JOINT is the ONLY authorized dealer of Dr. Bob artwork on Ebay! Dr. Bob sez: YEAH YA RITE!   

The weird and wonderful New Orleans folk art of Dr. Bob is back on Ebay!  

Dr. Bob was one of the  brave 9th Ward souls who stayed behind for Hurricane Katrina. He battled looters and infection, but came out on top and is back in action.  

Louie's Juke Joint is proud to be the exclusive Ebay source for works by Doctor Bob. Please check the Dr. Bob Folk Art Section of our Ebay Store to view more works by the good doctor. We hope to be adding many more pieces in the coming weeks, so check back often.  

Dr. Bob is perhaps New Orleans' most famous and renowned folk artist, his trademark BE NICE OR LEAVE signs having made a permanent place in the subculture of New Orleans. These paintings are not only great New Orleans memorabilia, but would make a great showpiece with a positive message in your bar, juke joint, or music venue.  

Description of this piece: Offered here is a one-of-a-kind original painting by Dr. Bob that features the phrase SHALOM Y'ALL. Bob pays tribute to his Jewish friends on this one, giving the familiar Jewish blessing his distinctive personal touch. The word SHALOM translates to English as "peace," and is a common greeting or farewell.  The piece features white letters in blue shadow against a flaming background that features an image of the famous trucker's "mudflap girl" made popular in the 1970s in green. The hand painted multicolored frame is adorned with bottle caps from local breweries. Dr. Bob has signed in the lower right hand corner. There is a heavy wire attached to the back for hanging.  

The dimensions (from the outer border of the frame) are approximately 14-14". The condition is excellent.  

Check It Out Department: Dr. Bob made the cover of New Orleans Magazine for June of 2008:  


Below is a picture of the artist, Dr. Bob, outside his New Orleans 9th Ward studio.


In aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Bob's presence was apparent with various signs and messages he posted around the beleaguered Ninth Ward area of New Orleans. Below is a photo of an abandoned refrigerator, upon which Bob gives looters fair warning.  


Below is a photo of Mariah Carey posing with her own Dr. Bob piece, in her home. The photo appeared in People Magazine on January 13, 2003 (page 52).

A Brief Bio of Dr. Bob: Dr. Bob, half Crow Indian and half French/German, is a self taught artist born in Kansas who relocated to New Orleans via Lake Pontchartrain. His utilization of found objects in his work, along with his own unique painting style, have combined into one of the most recognizable and respected representations of New Orleans and Louisiana folk art in the world. He popularized the phrase "Be Nice or Leave" in his paintings, which has become an internationally recognized part of his identity. Among the celebrities who have added Dr. Bob's work to their private collections are Emmy Lou Harris, GiO (The Burlesque Queen of New Orleans!), Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey (Mariah actually posed with her Dr. Bob piece for People Magazine!), Billy Connolly, Isaac Tigrett, and The Reverend Howard Finster. Dr. Bob's work can also be found in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institute, The Memphis Blues Foundation, the Center for Southern Folklore in Memphis, as well as the New Orleans House of Blues. Bob has also been featured on the Kansas City Public TV program, Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations (Vol. 15) - Bumbling through the Bayou.
