Sketch & Etch x Octavian Mielu
Two of the most iconic art movements to emerge from the 20th Century were Pop Art and Neon. Artists like Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg became household names for their use of popular culture images in art, but perhaps none became more iconic than Andy Warhol. Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, Marilyn Diptych, Chanel No5 and Audrey Hepburn silkscreens remain popular to this day.
Similarly, the use of Neon in art, advertising and decor became associated with cultural and artistic centers like Paris, New York, and Los Angeles. The 1970s saw a renaissance for Neon art, with artists such as Lily Lakich and Rudi Stern making their names by incorporating Neon in mixed media art.
Today, Sketch & Etch is drawing inspiration from these influential movements by integrating Neon with the works of the world's most up-and-coming artists. This collaboration with Romanian artist Octavian Mielu puts a modern twist on Pop Art classics to create works of art that draw the eye, elevate a room, and provide topics of conversation to last as long as the classics to which they pay homage.
