Fascinated by popular culture, Andy Housham is one of a growing number of contemporary artists who aim to create contemporary Pop Art for the 21st Century. Specializing in acrylic and collage on canvas, his work is particularly inspired by television and the Punk culture which originated in the 70’s. Each painted collage uses articles and pictures which relate in some way to the subject matter they are portraying. In the works entitled, Sid Vicious and Kurt Cobain, Andy hopes to portray the exploitation of the stars in the music industry, particularly how an individual can appear to become a product and buckle under the pressure of constant media scrutiny and adverse publicity.

Has anyone else got a problem with theirs? / CAN YOU SEE MINE??
