{ pop! } November 23, 2008


 

Pop art, popular culture, pop icons, comic and manga. The things that make up everyday life do not have to be banal. Take a bold approach and you have the pop art movement in the 50s and 60s, when the works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, John McHale and Takashi Murakami took the stage. Like a reaction or some may say, a rebellion to the elitist view of culture, art or any other artistic expressions, pop art gives meaning to mundane objects, carousing them with parody, idealization and an unique quality that is sometimes hard to pinpoint.

 

Here, a series of pop icons, rendered in the form of necklaces or earrings, to lend life a little of that 60s conceptual rebellion, while still embracing what our culture has to offer us. I say, ‘pop!’ What say you? Wear. And wear it with pride.
