This episode I had the pleasure of creating a tongue-in-cheek, pop inspired portrait titled
‘How do I tell him I don’t care for Fleetwood Mac.. on Valentines Day!’
What is pop art? Its emergence in the UK and USA in the 1950's highlighted the influx of mundane, mass produced culture, imagery and objects of the time.
Roy Lichtenstein's pop art famously featured the femme fatale, usually in a state of moral distress, in a parodical, comic strip style.
I love the pop art aesthetics of saturated colours, bold outlines and subject matter, embedded pattern and dots.
Have a great week, until next time!
