A two-decade collection of paintings by Poster Pop artists including Aaron Marshall, Marco Almera, Alan Forbes, Pizz, Shag, Dirty Donny, Frank Kozik and Von Franco will be on display and for sale, for the first time.
The Poster Pop Collection spotlights several important paintings by Poster Pop Artists in the tiki, Hawaiiana, alternative and hotrod genres.
Highlights of the Collection include 19 paintings by Pop Surrealist Aaron Marshall; Shag’s 1997 painting “Religious Icon 2;” “Crown of Bunnies,” the first oil painting by Frank Kozik; “Priscilla Ua,” widely considered to be one of Pizz’s top five works along with rare paintings by Alan Forbes and Marco Almera.
“Since 1997, Poster Pop has created merchandise and published art prints based on the artists’ work. I’ve always enjoyed a great working relationship with my Poster Pop artists,” says Matt Getz ”It was both logical and key that I started collecting the original art.”
The show at La Luz de Jesus and the the upcoming book on the Collection will feature over 120 works with forwards by Dirty Donny and BigToe. The volume will be written by Poster Pop Founder, Matt Getz.
Poster Pop is located in Huntington Beach. Additional show info and images forthcoming.
