The pop culture never ceases to inspire artists from around the globe. Afterthe Starbucks mugs of Soo Min Kim or the apocalyptic landscapes of Filip Hodas, we present you today the creative project of the Italian artist Dito Von Tease (male reference to the American dancer Dita von Teese, you'll understand).
christened "Melting Pop", this artwork project aims to create the improbable encounter between different references of popular culture (cinema, music, animation, video games ...) and everyday objects.
Scream x Ice Cream
We do not necessarily realize when we translate the illustrations in French, but the artist play on words to create surprising mashups. For example, his illustration "Ice Scream" comes from the mix between the film "Scream" and ice cream in English ("Ice Cream").
The work of Dito Von Tease was divided into two stages. So the first was to imagine a new word, a neologism, from two references. The second was to create an illustration that speaks to everyone et that perfectly illustrates the word game. We let you discover below the 24 creations resulting from the project "Melting Pop“. And if you want to know more about the artist, we invite you to consult his portfolio.
