Artist Spotlight: Vlad Rodriguez’s Digital Pop Art
We’ve done lots of writing in the past about artists elevating the reputation of fan art, a medium that used to be reveled as something that only teenage amateurs did. But Vlad Rodriguez, along with others like him, are turning things around by creating art that belongs just as much in the art world as it does on Tumblr. Rodriguez mostly paints digitally (a process he shows in several Vimeo videos), and his aesthetic tip-toes on the line of mixed media and classic water colors. From Game of Thrones to Fight Club, Rodriguez’s love for popular culture is one that any fan can appreciate. Who wouldn’t want a recreation of the Ghostbusters poster?
