Rosmarie Tissi’s Sinaloa is prominently featured in two Me Portraits made by Ashley Bickerton (b.1959) in 1987. The artist didn’t make direct use of Letraset’s rub-down type. Instead, Bickerton recreated the letterforms with small deviations from the original, e.g. W is wider, S is more compact, G has a smaller aperture. Most strikingly, the number of Sinaloa’s characteristic stripes was reduced in some letters. The secondary type looks like Helvetica Inserat or similar.
The mixed-media installations use acrylic, aniline dye, bronzing powder and lacquer on plywood with anodised aluminium and steel cables. In 2017, they were shown in the Ornamental Hysteria exhibition at the Newport Street Gallery, London.
