Opening today, new works from Chris Booth hang in Metro Gallery through June 11, 2011.
A mixture of painting and sculpture, Booth’s works extend into visitors’ space like the pop-up illustration books of our childhood. Distancing himself from the “high art” pop-art genre made famous by Warhol and Lichtenstein, Booth embraces the “low brow”. Describing his work as “Lichtenstein goes to Osaka”, the artist relives the art of Japanese anime, inspired by the “super-flat” movement led by artists such as Takashi Murakami.
