False Start by Jasper Johns
Jasper Johns, Jr. (born May 15, 1930) is an American contemporary artist who works primarily in painting and printmaking.Born in Augusta, Georgia, Jasper Johns spent his early life in Allendale SC, with his paternal grandparents after his parents' marriage failed. He began drawing when he was three and has continued doing art ever since.Johns is best known for his painting Flag(1954–55), which he painted after having a dream of the American flag. His work is often described as a Neo-Dadaist, as opposed to pop art, even though his subject matter often includes images and objects from popular culture. Still, many compilations on pop art include Jasper Johns as a pop artist because of his artistic use of classical iconography. Early works were composed using simple schema such as flags, maps, targets, letters and numbers. I really enjoyed this painting because i love how he used warm colors. it is very interesting by the color words he actually drew on the this painting. I believe that this also catches your eye do to the mess of the colors blending together.
