Pop art has always been a style of art I’ve admired. Roy Lichenstein, Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud are a few of my favorite artists of all time. Bright colors, recognizable imagery drawn from popular media and products. This style of art is a wonderful way to show whats going on in the world we live in.
Grégoire Guillemin, aka “Léon”, is a leader in the “Geek Art” movement. His work celebrates science fiction, comic books, video games and pop culture icons. Consumerism, lust, gluttony and vanity are things that are explored in Léon work. His artworks rediscover and reinvent styles through experimentation and a clean minimalist approach.
These pieces are so relevant to our generation. The series “The Secret Life of Heroes” is just one of his mind blowing series is a that is a hilarious inside look at the hidden, colorful and slightly steamy, life of our most beloved heroes. So called ‘innocent’ childhood favorites smoking cigarettes, taking selfies with Iphones, picking their nose, holding a gun and groping one another? So rad! I mean there’s nothing hotter than Superman eating a cheeseburger. Mmmm yummy.
Graphic designer Darkchoocoolat aka Florent Rousseau has been creating some super fun nerdy art. 8 bit fruits and veggies can brighten up my day. Pop culture anything always sparks my interest.
You should probably eat five fruits and vegetables a day to be in good health. Its easy when they look this delicious and adorable.
This health bar is super clever. Not a bad idea if you’d like to see some of your video game characters zombiefied. Something like this would be pretty useful in a game when you’ve died. Plus you gotta think that zombies have different character abilities. Sounds like a fun game to play if you ask me.
What about everybody’s favorite Mario Bros mushroom? What about all your other favorite characters? The Eye of Sauron, Link, Robocop or Darth Vader? Mushrooms have to dress up for Halloween too ya know.
Be careful At-At! Banana peels are dangerous.
Lets not forget about our favorite Breaking Bad scalawag Walter White. Those of us that watched the show know he makes a killer breakfast for Walt Jr so why cant he make a delicious bread? Actually maybe his bread would taste a little meth-y.
Here’s the kawaii version of the same print. Besides, we all love inanimate objects with little faces.
