POP FUSION - OOAK Art Installation by KrisRix POP FUSION - OOAK Art Installation by KrisRix
PRINTS, SHIRTS, iPHONE/iPAD CASES, AND MORE: [link]

This is a 6-piece acrylic art installation showcasing various anime characters, each of which are pop culture icons in their own rights. They are all the most recognized and popularized creations of their respective genres.

In the spirit of their pop culture standing, each has been recreated in a pop art style. The colors of these pieces are bold and primary, and the pop art style is further highlighted through the usage of a traditional Benday dots technique.

The final dimensions are 24x36 inches, allowing a 1 inch suggested gutter size between each piece, except for piece 4 and 5, which are flush to one another on their bottom and top respectively (see first image).


Left to right, top to bottom:

1. R-78 Gundam from "Gundam 0079" et al.
10x20 in.
Close-up:

2. Sailor Moon from "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon"
12x12 in.

3. Pikachu from "Pokémon"
6x12 in.

4. "Whoosh" Sound Effect
6x24 in.

5. Astro Boy from "Astro Boy"

I understand that these characters might've been picked for how easily recognizable they are but when will the day come when anime characters from classics of the past ~20 yrs that aren't as well known to the public eye like Kenshin, Vash, Kiba, Tenchi and the Major pop up in exhibited works : /

I can't seem to get the photos to stitch together well, ;__; And I don't have the original piece with me anymore (it's at a relative's house, several hundred miles away...) BUT hopefully I can get some good pictures of it next time I go there, and then I'll be able to recreate the whole thing on a poster. Sorry! :(

The supplies alone were 400 dollars and the time invested actually makes the hourly wage a pittance. Fine art isn't cheap for a reason, : P
