Johnny Romeo


New Paintings

Following a series of sell-out shows in Australia and the US, internationally acclaimed Australian Pop painter Johnny Romeo returns with his latest body of work, ICONS.

With his flair for electrifying Technicolour arrangements, Neo-Expressionist urgency and larger than life line-work, ICONS showcases some of Romeo’s most bombastic and Pop works yet.

Appropriating beloved childhood icons such as Popeye the Sailor Man, Mickey Mouse and Betty Boop, the series challenges our understanding of originality and authorship, and blurs the line between fine art and lowbrow culture. Boisterous, invigoratingly energetic and unapologetically kitsch, ICONS sees Johnny Romeo at the top of his game.

With Johnny Romeo in attendance, ICONS opens at 6-9pm on Friday 3rd October 2014 at CG PROJECTS, 140 West Fourth St, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, 17701, USA. The exhibition will run until November 1st.
