The Art of Burton
Burton Morris works
Burton Morris, regarded as
“grandfather of Pop Art”, is known for his bold, graphic paintings of
modern icons. His subject matter includes everyday objects that portray
today's popular culture. From the age of three Morris has
been drawing and painting, and has always enjoyed entertaining people with
his artwork. By adding a contemporary twist to traditional "Pop Art"
Morris was able to create a
distinctive style of his own, characterized by radiant outlines and vivid
colours. He would choose one subject per composition, altering the colour
variations to create what he calls “an instant happening” for the viewer.
His compositions often seem to pop-out from the paper due to the smaller
background within which he painted them.
further enhanced his work by incorporating sword-like slashes to suggest
shards of energy - which are a direct result of his study of woodcut
prints from the 16th century. Building on the legacy of Pop Art masters
such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein,
presents his personal world of popular American icons that put a
delightful spin on everyday objects and motifs. In his post-Pop style,
Morris boldly projects an enticing mood of happiness, high energy, and
fun. His success continues to grow as a contemporary American artist,
whose art has raised thousands of dollars for charities such as the
Race for the Cure, Muscular Dystrophy, Art for AIDS and the Children's
Hospital. His work continues to represent international events such as the
Winter Olympics 2002, the Annual Academy Awards 2004, and the World Cup
campaigns of 1998 and 2010.
