Above Second will present a Summer Group Show “POP”. What began as an underground almost anarchic form of expression has now been embraced by museums and galleries as an art movement. The works of these artists exemplify this generation’s transition of mural art and graffiti to the gallery space. As artists, they have come full circle, from the streets to the galleries, and back to the streets showing their work to the widest possible audience.
Though their styles and techniques vary, their influence from graphic design and popular culture is easily visible. Stories of society, politics, and culture from across the globe sit side by side. POP seeks to display a range of artworks influenced by pop culture, bringing the diverse colors of the streets into the white walls of the gallery.
