Portraying Personality through Pop Art

My new found passion for capturing the personality, heart and soul of animals through my new series of paintings with unnatural and vibrant colours. The black background is used to make certain elements ‘pop out’ at the viewer. I try to people’s pet’s spirit and personality in my use of colour, stroke and composition. My depiction of animals through Pop Art are capturing people’s sentiment for animals. “Life doesn’t have to be complex and art doesn’t have to be either.”

The word “POP” was coined by a British art critic in 1954, and quickly became a common term to describe the new wave of art that employed images and themes from popular culture, such as music, cinema, advertising and news. Andy Warhol was known as the ‘Pope of Pop’ and his cans of Campbell’s Soup paintings, or his silkscreen prints of Marilyn Monroe, is synonymous with thoughts of the Pop Art era.
