TOP OF THE POPS
TOP OF THE POPS is the triumphant, much anticipated Sydney show from internationally acclaimed Australian Pop artist Johnny Romeo. Brimming with his signature blend of comic book aesthetics, celebrity icons, Americana twang, punk-rock swagger and Grindhouse-grit, TOP OF THE POPS is an electrifying visual mix-tape of new paintings that perfectly captures Romeo’s inimitable Neo-Expressionist Pop style. With its cheeky reference to cult British music programme, TOP OF THE POPS sees Romeo at the top of his game as the leading force in Australian Pop Art.
Romeo has generated massive international buzz in the last few years. Amazing American audiences with consecutive, celebrated and sell-out exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Pennsylvania in 2013 and 2014, Johnny Romeo has become a major force to be reckoned with in the US art scene.
In late 2014, Romeo exhibited alongside his childhood hero and Pop Art icon, Robert Indiana, as part of The Cornell Museum of Art premiere show LANGUAGE ART in Florida. He has caught the attention of big names in the creative industry, collaborating with widely popular punk band Blink 182 and working on commissions from Leonardo DiCaprio. In Europe, Romeo shows with galleries in London and Milan.
