Whilst the title of this artwork is a fusion of 'POP' from the pop art movement and the artist friend's high school nickname 'ek', the artistic concept behind the piece is also a fusion of unique and wonderful ideas.
Initially a parody of contemporary artist Jeff Koons whose work sold for nearly $60m at auction, these cheeky and rebellious hand-painted sculptures by Whatshisname also adopt the behaviour of real dogs; modelled after his own three pets. Consequently, the other aim of this piece is to evoke pure joy and happiness by mixing the childlike colours of party balloons with the natural yet hilariously exaggerated behaviour of dogs.
At a time when the healing powers and happiness of art is as crucial as ever, including a wellbeing arts programme across major New York museums, the raw humour and joy evoked from this hand-painted resin sculpture is the perfect addition to any space.
