REINVENTING ROCKWELL

 

How would the iconic paintings of Norman Rockwell look if Rockwell were alive and painting today? This is the heart of Pop's critcally acclaimed new series, REINVENTING ROCKWELL. Pops' mission is not only to update the styles of hair, clothing and gadgets, but also to show the evolution of gender roles, sexuality and ethnic diversity. 

 

The slideshow below presents several of Rockwell famed paintings, each followed by Pops new versions. For more information, please refer to the Press and Video pages. For descriptions of select works, click here.
