POW (Powerful) and WOW (Amazing)

This artwork is sold not framed - Images of the framed artwork are for illustration purpose only.

“Pow Wow” refers to words used in traditional comic book bubbles, frequently used in my work.
Onomatopoeic words seen in comic books express sound effects written in pictures. The word helps the reader imagine the sounds in the story.
‘Pow” (powerful) indicates a sudden loud noise, such as a blow or explosion. “Wow” is not an onomatopoeia but an interjection, used to express a reaction of amazement or
surprise and doesn’t represent a sound.
The title is used within the context of Comic Books and Pop Art and bears no reference to any other use of the words.
My graphic pop artwork is rooted in technology, borrowing a variety of contradictory visual imagery (such as stickers, comic strips, social media icons). Through various digital processes, I manipulate, paint and layer these images in, behind and around a portrait, to create a whole new mixed media digital artwork.

All art is packaged professionnally in boxes or cardboard packaging.
