The piece of pop art that you are viewing is a piece from the Marcus Pierson collection at the Pop gallery in SoHo. I took a liking to this piece in particular because it is a play on a famous painting by the legendary Salvador Dali, almost to the point that it is to mock the artist himself. Pierson captures the essence of a Dali painting as if to say "anything you can do..." then he takes it in a totally different direction by adding a distinct pop art touch to it; making it a very nice piece. In this collection Pierson has had his way with Camel's similar to the way that Alexander McQueen openly displays his obsession with skulls. All in all I must say this is a collection to be ingested and appreciated.
