Pop art proves "popular"
Well it would, wouldn't it? Pop art has come a long way since the days of Andy Warhol and tins of soup. But the essential elements remain. Images from the world of media and mass market consumerism. Brand names, labels, sci-fi and rock'n'roll.
One new artist who typifies today's pop art is Jesse Diss. Jesse was already immersed in the world of rock'n'roll when his acrylics on canvas and screen prints started to attract the attention of original art buyers in the UK.
In Jesse's images you'll see icons of modern music such as the Mustang guitar, or Meg and Jack White (The White Stripes). Using in-your-face colour and bold arrangments, Jesse's work lends itself to being collected by the funkier kind of art lover. His art seems to want to leap off the wall and rock out in your living room.
