Composite original and vintage photographs, digital painting

"Poptimism!" is a multimedia series about the optimism of pop culture seen through the juxtaposition of mid century photography and contemporary urban street art influence. 

A multi(new)media work combining original photography of urban street decay, 1950's advertising images, and digital painting, it underscores how the identity of trends changes in spite of the attractiveness of the trend, and how each age has it's own pop sentiments that give way to the next trend.
