Campbell La Pun
Originating from Melbourne, Tokyo based Campbell La Pun's paintings wallow in a mash up of popular culture from iconic film characters to retro video games and Japanese anime cartoons to comic text. His pictures takes us on a dizzying trip through the aesthetics of urban stencil art and a crazy world of Japanese Kawaii cuteness and Kimochi sensations.
Using everything from stencils to aerosol and acrylic paint on wood and canvas, La Pun invites us to journey through a modern world; his paintings reflect the dizzying range of motifs, colours and forms that manifest themselves in pop culture iconography and advertising images of the global marketplace. Thus attacking our senses every moment of everyday. Each picture is a juxtaposition of East and West, America and Japan. A neon world of candy coloured madness that perpetually blinks in the artificial brightness of Times Square in New York and the Shibuya district in Tokyo.
