INSPIRED POP ART
The Go Pop! screenprinted series brings to life my collection of vintage bottle caps, in the form of wall art. It recognises the striking graphic narrative of the 20th Century and explores the relationship between consumerism, art and graphic design.
The series respects the textures and stories that the aged bottle caps tell, with each detail of the original bottle cap meticulously reproduced for print.
The result: a blown up bottle cap that captures the mood of an era and the art of graphic design.
The bottle caps will be screenprinted at 500mm x 500mm, using 8 colours and form an exclusive limited edition. Each one printed on the highest quality archival paper, featuring the artist (me) Tom Love's hand signature and edition number, making sure each one is a collectable and covetable piece of art.
The collection consists of 6 iconic soda brands; Coca Cola, Pepsi, 7up, Cherry Coke, NEHI and Mello Yello.
I want more people to value the role design has in our lives and give more people access to affordable, quality art that can inspire and inform.
