JOHNNY ROMEO DREAM-LAND Referred to as a bombastic neo expressionist pure pop painter with a lot to say about modern life, Johnny Romeo’s work deals with the way we construct our identities from the vast array of images that pop culture immerses us in. His work critiques the madness of a modern world driven by pervasive advertising, hollow materialism and wasteful excess, exploring the way in which we construct our identities through the idolisation of pop culture and brandname heroes. DREAM-LAND is Johnny Romeo at his finest - six new works created especially for 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace.
