Ronald Hunter and Pop Art
Ronald Hunter is a versatile artist, with an oeuvre that encompasses different – abstract and modern – styles. But despite his versatility, he still manages to have a ‘signature’ style that is easy to recognize.
Ronald has, in addition to abstract art, a true love for Pop Art. We want to know more, and ask Ronald where his fascination for Pop Art comes from.
Ronald: “As long as I can remember, I am drawn to Pop Art. I like that it’s such a pronounced art form. Reality is not what it seems and is even placed in a entirely different light. Specifically the way in which Pop Artists succeed in pulling every day objects out of context, enlarge and exagerate it. While as a viewer, you are often misled.”
Ronald tells us that Pop Art always evokes in him a positive response:
“I see it as a wink to the world, and to me it always triggers something friendly. It is refreshing, and it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I am a fan of the vibrant colors Pop Artists use.”
Colors that Pop!
Ronald: “Although I would never consider myself a Pop Artist like Warhol or Koons, I am inspired by their creations.”
With this in mind, you will notice Ronald uses neon and contrasting colors a lot, as well as large typography and stunning portraits.
Have a look at his latest artwork, ‘Neon Pop Colors’ (90x90cm). A vibrant piece with colors that ‘pop’ of the canvas. This original painting is available (incl. frame) in our shop.
