If Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein were looking down on Cayman right about now they’d surely raise a smile or two. Pop Art has arrived – at Full of Beans in George Town.
For the whole of June visitors to the Pasadora Place eatery may well believe they’ve taken a trip back in time.
The walls are adorned with art that wouldn’t look out of place on galleries from days gone by. Think London in the mid-1950s or the United States from a few years later when a new form of art took the countries by storm.
Pop Art is simple to explain but difficult to execute. Pam and Marc Laurenson along with Kevin Mounsor have nailed it.
They are part of the art group Stoak’d and their latest exhibition has given Cayman popular culture a twist.
From parrots to movies stars, musicians to landscapes, lovers of popular art, and indeed art in general must pay a visit to Full of Beans this month. They’ll leave feeling stoak’d.
Stoak’d at Full of Beans runs throughout June.
