Zoe Moss, Marilyn in Hightops


Regardless of whether you're a dedicated shopaholic or if you've had the same wardrobe for years, there's no escaping fashion's grip on popular culture. With trends constantly changing, it's hard to keep up with the influx of fashion fads. Zoe Moss' witty print is a clever response to this fast fashion phenomenon. Placing the cultural icon Marilyn Monroe into Nike High Tops blurs the lines between contemporary fashion culture and vintage pop culture icons, whilst critiquing the fleeting nature of trends.

Kristian Jones, Modern Life is Rubbish


Ever take time to acknowledge how many hours you spend on your phone? Technology, particularly social media, plays an integral role in pop culture, making it the perfect topic of discussion for artists. Modern Life is Rubbish by Kristian Jones is the perfect example of this. Kristian’s seemingly witty and light hearted illustrations have a sinister twist; Kristian uses his talents to highlight the downfalls of living in a modern society dictated by technology and social media.

Bambi, Lie Lie Land (Grey)

Political satire

Politics and political satire has been a huge inspiration for artists for centuries. This work by anonymous street artist Bambi is a humorous criticism of Donald Trump and Theresa May. Based on the movie poster for the Oscar winning La La Land, the two controversial politicians are captured dancing gleefully, as if rejoicing in the negative opinions towards their political decisions. This print marks a controverisal period in worldwide politics, making it the ideal present for someone with their finger on the pulse of popular culture.
