Pop went many things. The weasel, chiefly, as well as the cork on a champagne bottle. Not to mention the title of 1980s band, Erasure’s celebration of their first 20 years in the music industry.
On this particular occasion, the pop in question is balloon-based. Part graffiti art, part bubblegum explosion art, part pop art for the pop tart generation, rising urban pop artist, Lhouette definitely has his finger on the creative pulse and delivered us not into temptation, but unto a visceral vision fantastically coloured, largely-lettered big time love.
Through his psychedelically furry-edged contemporary compositions. This one sees a girl, love-lost or found (evidence to support both) standing tall and proud, clenching a posse of balloons, staring out into the abyss of amour, flanked by guardian angel-esque swallows. Vibrant, powerful, illuminating and joyous, simultaneously.
