Pop Art is not just fun and colorful but it really started to define a very American style of art. Rebellious, irreverent but also innovative and thought provoking. I decided to put together these 3 iconic pieces and see what I can come up with.
Jasper Johns "Numbers In Color" 1958-59
Andy Warhol's "Campbell's Soup Cans" 1962
Yves St. Laurent's "Mondrian Dress" 1965
I love the free flowing layered messy feel of the Jasper Johns piece because I tend to like grungy and messy along with color. And I just happened to have a magazine that had a bunch of Campbell's soup ads in it. So I added a little messy paint and colored pencil to scrapbook paper that sort of had a Jasper Johns feel to it.
Then I finally decided to go with the classic silhouette from the St. Laurent dress.
Voila! My "Johns Warhol Mondrian St. Laurent" inspired paper dress!
I really had lots of fun making this one. It's much different from my usual girlie dresses and I like the challenge of trying something new. The hardest part was stopping myself from adding a paper flower or ruffles. Thanks again Angela for another great theme.
