Eye Porn – The Art of Burton Morris

In Art by Connie Isakidis

I promise that for now, this will be my last post on exhibits that I saw in my beloved New York. Once again walking through my favourite end of the city, the Lower East Side, I came across a cool looking gallery on Bowery. Now I’m just saying, while I appreciate all forms of art and all art genres, Pop Art is my favourite. I absolutely love the colour and the liveliness that Pop Art has over the many other genres. That being said, if my dreams came in a painted form, Burton Morris would be the artist.

For many of you Friends lovers out there, you might recall seeing amazing and colourful artworks splattered over the 10 seasons? Let me jog your memory…
