Artist: Jon Campbell

Artist: Jon Campbell

The simple act of taking materials from the everyday world and making one's own sense and meaning from them, is central to the art of Australian pop painter Jon Campbell. Campbell selects things that fascinates him, takes them apart - and puts them back together, not quite as they were before. In his art, the history of local and international pop art is intertwined with local and subjective motifs to explore a masculine view of the Australian suburban experience. Jon Campbell puts together hits and memories in a witty and compelling DIY suburban art. Like the best pop music it is an art that is hard to dislike.
