"When we create Pop Art pieces by pairing abstract paintings with pop culture items, something unanticipated and special occurs sometimes."
Conceived as an intermediary between iconic imagery and culture, the Pop Collection sees the Bisaillon Brothers illustrate classical brands they resonate with through a range of medium including resin, acrylic paint, graphic design and code; all of which feature in the above original. The latter involves Michael Bisaillon’s own trinary code which he applies as a comment on the conflict between digital and analogue in contemporary society. In this original artwork the code translates to 'VODKA'.
The subject matter of this original is also exciting because it inherits a fascinating history of art and alcohol that can range from Caravaggio’s 16th century painting of the Greek God of Wine ‘Bacchus’, to contemporary artist Jeff Koon’s collaboration with Dom Pérignon. Most importantly, this original succeeds the brothers’ own inspiration Andy Warhol who collaborated with Absolut Vodka in the 1980s, famously blurring the line between artists and brands which the Bisaillon Brothers continue to push in their extraordinary artwork.
