POPek Black - 50cm Tall

POPek Black is a sculpture by contemporary artist Whatshisname (aka Sebastian Burdon). From a limited edition of 50.

Contemporary artist Whatshisname fuses the digital and the traditional to create provocative works of art. Attempting to express the ineffable, Whatshisname challenges his viewer to refocus on the world around them, questioning what they see in unorthodox and unconventional ways. Often parodic, and always saturated with humour and irony, Whatshisname's work is powerfully visual, creating instantaneous connection with every viewer.

Satirising the work of postmodern provocateur Jeff Koons, POPek Black takes the form of a small, red balloon dog, sculpted form glossy fibreglass. Squatting over a tiny balloon, Whatshisname shows us the kitsch canine in the moment of excretion, in this pop at the now-revered status of aesthetic postmodernism. Brilliantly satirical, POPek Red takes small-scale sculpture to dizzying heights.

POPek Black - 50cm Tall (£6,800)



Whatshisname is a Polish-born artist whose satirical designs are a humorous yet thought-provoking take on popular culture. Whatshisname started creating digital art at the age of 7 using the Atari 130 XE, where he would build each image pixel by pixel. Fusing traditional mediums with new technology, Whatshisname work is now highly acclaimed and has been exhibited internationally in major cities such as Los Angeles, Hong Kong, New York and London.



We love how Whatshisname bold designs and playful cast of characters are out of the ordinary, and intrigue the audience with their subtle yet witty changes. He is always one step ahead of his audience, using his self-proclaimed “outsider advantage” to create a vision of popular culture that is tongue-in-cheek. From his parodic sculptures and prints to his larger public projects, every Whatshisname artwork is a visually powerful pop culture statement.
