I stumbled across screenprinting pop-culture artist Matt Dye today and had to immediately and impulsively buy one of his prints (the one with Obama and the 357 Magnum). Awesome. It’s rare that I buy art, as much as I try to do to support it, simply because I have very little money but I just had to have that poster. Some of his test prints are really really cool as well. I love the Warhol prints and the Bowie prints. The color work and layering are beautiful. Some might argue that this work isn’t all together original but I think it is meant to be a tongue and cheek jab at pop art. It is a really attractive jab though, enough that it validates itself as its own little fascimile of pop art sarcasm.
