Pop Art. Forever.

New Brunswick, New Jersey | 180 Sales

Announcement    Hello - I am a pop artist hailing from New Brunswick, New Jersey.

My store contains my original paintings, screen prints and apparel.

My work transforms the familiar primarily via color selection and the painterly qualities present when painting by hand. Popular culture is a vital reference for me throughout the creative process.

Punk music, hip hop and skateboard and surf culture are all huge influences of mine. I prefer complementary, vibrant colors and lines.

I enjoy creating tension for the viewer visually and intellectually. I am interested in the tension a composition holds when seemingly contradictory elements are present--tension created through specific color and semiotic creative decisions in my compositions.

Thank you for stopping by to check out the store, I hope you will find something you enjoy!

Fresh, Yet Nostalgic - Pop Art for the Video Game Generation

I believe in breaking down modern pop art through the process of reverse engineering. I work primarily in acrylic paint. I prefer complementary colors and intense lines. I love it when a piece strikes the balance between a childhood influence and my personal vision. The mood I aim for is both fresh and nostalgic.

My approach as a self-taught, outsider artist is a reflection of my various homes, including Indiana, Virginia and New Jersey.

If my art was a party, musical stars would mingle with icons of the silver screen, cartoon clouds and a very special cow. Pop art would line the walls. I would DJ and freak out each time the crowd roared to an old school jam.

I run this shop with my fiancee, Jamie. She is a wonderful woman with an artistic drive, amazing work ethic and lots and lots of patience. She is truly the better half of the Chris Ernst Art team.

Thank you for stopping by to check out the shop! We hope you find something you like.
