- 102 x 102 cm, oil on canvas, original oil painting, stretched canvas, ready to hang
A close-up of the head of a zebra is executed in a twisted colour palette, whereby instead of the expected black and white stripes, the artist uses black, red and yellow. The yellow outline, the empty white background, and the totally flat treatment of the oil paint intentionally resemble an illustration or a graphic design work, in order to get related to the concepts of Pop Art.
The Pop Art movement aimed to blur the boundaries between "high" art and "low" culture. The concept that there is no hierarchy of culture and that art may borrow from any source has been one of the most influential characteristics of Pop art. In this case, a commonplace subject matter such as a zebra has been chosen. It is presented however within a fine art context, visually prooving what the great American Pop artist, Andy Warhol, said: ''Everything is beautiful. Pop is everything''.
