Art means a lot to the world, and everyone has their own favorite styles and ideas about what they enjoy. While there’s nothing wrong with classic styles of art, today’s artists often incorporate past ideas and principles in unique ways. A perfect example of that is the American artist Jerkface.
Jerkface lives and works in New York City and is also referred to as Cartoon Villain. His work is the very definition of pop art, and he uses famous cartoon characters from the last century to create clever pieces that are interesting and filled with nostalgia. His works bring not only feelings of happiness, but optimism and innocence – two things that he himself has said he attempts to bring to those who see his work.
Many of his pieces are found in galleries and exhibits around the world, but he is also famous for his street art. Huge murals covering entire buildings, walls, and vehicles have been created by Jerkface, featuring characters like Homer Simpson, Oscar the Grouch, and even the Care Bears. His street art is as instantly recognizable as his smaller pieces, al filled with color and characters that have been beloved by millions.
