I have been blogging lately on artwork derived from 1980′s and 1990′s pop culture with a sense of nostalgia … and this post is no different. Something about seeing artists rework images of my childhood into new art forms has me completely entranced today.
I am not saying I am rushing out the door to buy one of these original prints by Robot Rumpus, but I do think they are pretty cool. I mean, what captures a boy who grew up in the 80′s more than Nintendo game cartridges and action figures. Everyone had at least one of each.
What these prints capture is the desire, in my opinion, by those of us who grew up with subjects of these still-lifes, to be able to view them in a sophisticated context.
