Johnny Romeo goes POP
Johnny Romeo is an internationally acclaimed Australian pop painter whose energetic appropriation of comic book aesthetics and pop culture is capturing attention worldwide.
With GQ Magazine describing his art as ‘part punk, part pop’, he draws inspiration from neo-Expressionism, rock’n’roll, graffiti art and Pop art. Johnny Romeo’s work critiques the madness of a modern world driven by pervasive advertising, hollow materialism and wasteful excess, exploring the way in which we construct our identities through the idolisation of pop culture and brand-name heroes.
