“Art is either a complaint or appeasement”…

Jasper Johns, a Georgia born painter, sculptor and printmaker is mostly known for his images that feature 2-D objects like flags, maps, targets, numbers and letters. His style was banal and simplistic in color. A step away from the art that was hyped before POPART became vogue.

After the 1960’s he began to make sculptures with actual objects… this expanded his stardom even more. He is one of the most famous living artists of the POPART era.
