Artist Matt Pecson creates "Pop Art Mashup" Paintings

by Jennifer Carroll

Matt Pecson is known for creating contemporary art using pop culture icons.

But he also has been creating stunning custom POP masterpieces using a combination of somewhat unrelated pop images, in a style he calls "Fusion Pop Art" or "Pop Art Mashups." This witty art encourages conversation and always gets attention.

Here he combines two favorite pop culture icons:

"Deathstar" Marilyn Monroe / Darth Vader, 16x20, Oil on Wood Artist Board

"Deathstar" Marilyn Monroe / Darth Vader, 16x20, Oil on Wood Artist Board

"Flying Tigers" Jimi Hendrix / WWII Flying Tigers Squadron Logo, 36x12, Oil on Canvas

"Mickey Mau5" Mickey Mouse / Deadmau5, 36x48, Mixed on Canvas

Here he combines three:

Here he combines four or more:

"Bootleg" Jimi Hendrix / Marilyn Monroe / Space Invaders / Felix the Cat / Rolling Stones / The Sopranos / Ultraman / Apocalypse Now / Star Wars' Han Solo / Trojan Condoms Logo / The Godfather / Sex Pistols / Speed Racer, 108x72, Mixed on Canvas

Pecson does custom paintings and can create a "Pop Art Mashup" for you using your favorite pop culture icons. He can paint any of the same images above, or create custom pop art just for you, based on your tastes. Disney characters or princesses, music legends, movie icons or other pop culture elements can be put together in to a unique piece for your home. Imagine showing that off to your friends!
