acrylic and varnish on paper

In this work Tosh takes up the Pop Art painting by the American artist Roy Lichtenstein, depicting a young woman. With this choice Tosh highlights her closeness to Pop Art and one of its most famous representatives. The Pop artist is not only evoked by the subject, but also by the title. Tosh dedicates the entire work to him. 

Tosh has used strong and bright acrylic colours with varnish, creating vivid contrast. Instinctive and Pop, Tosh creates a clear and discursive work, which tells a world that is easy to approach for the observer and transmitts energy and vitality thanks to the power of colour.

The work is signed on the back and the "Tosh" brand is on the right.

 

1995 Santa Margherita, Italy

Andrea Cocciolo, known as ‘’TOSH’’, was born in Santa Margherita (GE) in 1995, he graduated in 2012 earning the ‘’diploma’’ of ‘’maestro d’arte’’ at ‘’Liceo artistico E.Luzzati’’ in Chiavari (GE), where he lives right now. Since his first steps, he’s well known in the Ligurian artistic scene where he proposes a new relationship between the American Pop Art and our society, indeed one of his first artwork can be considered the reinterpretation of ‘’Toan Crawford Says’’, American painter James Rosenquist’s masterpiece. TOSH attended collective and personal exhibitions, art fairs and live performances across the country. Moreover, he worked for Ernst Knam and Patron Tequila and he’s already been published on the national press like ‘’’SECOLO XIX’’, ‘’LA STAMPA’’, and ‘’GRAZIA’’. Every single work reflects the artist’s point of view of the artistic world that he approaches with different techniques such as oil and acrylics colours, enamelling and crayons. Viewers sight is captured by his bright colours and ‘’every day’’ images joined by different generations, that he also defines with the term ‘’New Pop’’.
