Pop Art Was Never So Pop Until It Came Across Instagram. Instagram is not only a way for celebrities to share moments of their lives. Depending on what you do, you’ll use it for very different purposes. If you have a business, it’s likely that you’ll get it a push using Instagram, and if you’re an artist, you may have at least a piece of your art on your profile. That’s what we’re going to talk about today—artists. Specifically one who is having a great success. His name is Tony Futura and he’s an Instagram artist.
Futura’s profile (@tonyfutura) is currently being followed by almost 39 thousand people
He comes from Germany and, as an artist, he is focused on pop art . However, he doesn’t create his art from the scratch, but takes popular pop art works and improves them. He usually takes a work and he interprets them adding pinches of surrealism to them. Basically what he does is “updating works and makes them suitable for the current times.”
Nobody is free from his reach: celebrities, great brands and works of art have been taken by Futura, then turned into surrealist images. Michelangelo’s God and Adam are exchanging cocaine for money, Munch’s The Scream with the screaming man replaced by Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone and Albert Einstein rolling a cigarette using his tongue, which he has stuck out.
Originality is what Futura believes essential for his art. That’s why he takes two different elements and brings them together artistically. Every work is meditated, that’s why the mixtures are so great. While others would just take something from here and there, he takes just what’s necessary for each picture to become perfect.
One thing is for sure, he has achieved what he wanted – to revive pop culture. Go check his profile and tell us if it’s alive or not.
