Well, what can I say more in praise of this artist than these images have not already told you? It's clear that something is still true about painting - and was used successfully by the likes of Warhol and Rauschenberg: - it can create a vivid, true overview of our society.

Scott Stulen likes to play with image. And, in one of the images above, he toys with Warhol's reading of ready-made culture. Famous Andy's Brillo box thus appears in the same frame as Bambi, equivalencing pop(art)-culture with popular culture: ready-made vs. archetypal cuteness, art legend vs. Disney's legend.
(And no, I'm not having a swipe at Disney's role in globalisation).
