About the Artist:
When asked what she wanted to reveal about herself as an artist, Maria PopArt simply said, “I was born under a lucky star in Romania. A star that never ceased to illumine my path and guide my steps. I look at myself and I love what I see. I like how I am and where I have reached. I am at peace with myself and with others. I know who I am and what I want out of life.” Her art, presented in a PopArt style, reflects the simple truth of who she is and what she ignites her soul.
For those unfamiliar with pop art, as an art movement, it emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Pop art presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising and news. In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, and/or combined with unrelated material. The concept of pop art refers not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it.
Pop art aims to use images of popular, as opposed to elitist, culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony. So, this is what contemporary pop artists, such as Maria PopArt, strive to express through their works.
Dogbotz Boneyard appreciates the pop art works of Maria PopArt because of her playful and often assertive use of popular icons found in comic books, posters, Japanese animé, and even Mid-Century East European Socialist images. Not only do the nudes in this collection reveal the beauty of the women portrayed but also the impassioned souls contained therein. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard art gallery for your own personal collection, we present Maria PopArt’s Shy Butterfly.
