ASIA POP is a series of photo collages-that juxtapose high art with contemporary Asian popular culture.

There is a remarkable decorative coherence in this art as figurative forms, patterns and colours are orchestrated across the whole surface. Often on a large scale, the commonplace image is awarded the same significance as the iconic. Street paraphernalia is shown side by side with familiar motifs such as an orchid, rickshaw, flip flop or religious figure.

When powerful Asian images are transmuted through Pop art, the results provoke the senses: diverse religious icons, the extremes of real life and the rigid chaos of the Asian social landscape are extruded through loud and proud electric colours – that almost makes it advertising or perhaps Art-vertising?

The distinctive colour palette is kept deliberately gaudy to reflect the exuberance of Asian life or the exuberant Asian aesthetic. Strong chromatic hues such as Bandung pink, day-glow orange, vermillion, aqua and lime usually found in Bollywood film posters give the work a novel vibrancy which also cleverly mimics mass advertising and comic books.
