Hi everyone! Here’s something that I made for Gallery 1988’s 10th Anniversary Show, “The Subtle Art of Pop Culture. You can see it and all the other artwork here.
I highly recommend checking it out—there is an incredible variety of work being shown, and I’ve learned about some new artists’ work I want to watch.
As for this piece…around the time I was invited to participate in this pop culture show, Twitch was comeditragically playing Pokemon. Hence, the piece. Twitch Plays Pokemon (and the hype/enthusiasm surrounding it) made me understand sports fans (both e- and regular) a lot more. So many people yelling at the same thing on the internet at the same time! What a glorious wonder.
Thanks so much to the folks at Gallery 1988 for letting me participate!
