Pop Art


Don't think  about making art, just get it done. Let everyone  else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

--Andy Warhol
According to Wikipedia, Pop Art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Pop Art presented a challenge to tradition of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising and news. 

When people talk about pop art, usually they will associate it with the work of New York artist of the early 1960s such as Andy Warhol
Najla said, this is totally me
Why do I suddenly become so serious about art (padahal ga ngerti-ngerti banget)? It's because on my way to work, my eyes were always laid on one street gallery. Actually there are several galleries around my neighborhood yet what special about this street gallery is it has several colorful painting that kind of pop art works. Hey...it's awesome to find such thing in my area since it's not a big city or something #sindrom tinggal dipelosok.

While Zea comment was, it's 90% of me, my cheeks are not that chubby #denial
One day I dropped by and talked to Cak Sur, the painter or I will represent him as an Art Director as stated in his name card. We had a chat and I found out lots of interesting stuff about him such as how he ended up as a street painter in this area after exploring many places, in fact I saw his pics when he was in Australia. He said that he used to have gallery at Pasar Seni Ancol but now the place is quite left behind thus he chose to open this street gallery nearby his home. All in all he said with a poetic question, what  do we actually need in life? We just want more and more. Can't stop. Never satisfied. I know this is deep.

On my second visit, I decided to have pop art pictures for my family members. Cak Sur agreed and asked for two weeks to finish it. I sent all the family pics to his e-mail (yep, it's high-tech era now, you don't have to sit all day long in front of the painter to get painted like in the old days and finally get stiff muscle or encok or something) and waited impatiently for the results.

Last weekend, Cak Sur dropped by at my place and delivered those four paintings and I got nothing to say instead of a big WOW to see his awesome works. Way to go, Cak Sur. Thank you for the paintings and hope the painting orders get more and more.
