  • Poopy Pants Designer Art Toy by Joan Cornellà Poopy Pants Designer Art Toy by Joan Cornellà

    Joan Cornellà Poopy Pants Designer Art Toy by Joan Cornellà

    Purchase Poopy Pants Designer Art Toy by Joan Cornellà Limited Edition Vinyl Sculpture Collectible Artwork by Pop Street Artist. 2021 Limited Edition of TBD Artwork Size 5x10.2 New In Box Printed Signature on Foot. Statue of a man in pink suit with fist up holding two signs reading: Stop Being Poor & Fiught The Power-Less.  Joan Cornellà's "Poopy Pants" Designer Art Toy is a testament to the audaciousness and satirical depth characteristic of much of today's pop and street art. This limited edition vinyl sculpture released in the spring/summer of 2021 presents a provocative and simultaneously comedic vision. Depicting a figure in a bright pink suit, pants embarrassingly pulled down to his ankles, the artwork wields a directness in its messaging. A bold sign draped over the figure's torso declares, "Stop Being Poor," juxtaposed with another sign he holds aloft proclaiming, "Fight The Powerless." The imagery here is rife with paradox and contradiction. On one hand, the call to "Stop Being Poor" might be a sarcastic commentary on the oversimplification of societal ills and the ignorance of those in power. On the other, the message to "Fight The Powerless" lampoons the misdirection of societal rage and the frequent scapegoating of those least equipped to defend themselves. The use of the pink suit, a non-traditional and flashy color, further emphasizes the piece's defiance of convention. Joan Cornellà's artistry delves into the sometimes uncomfortable realm of social commentary, forcing viewers to confront and question established norms and values. This vinyl sculpture, with its printed signature on the foot, serves as both a collector's item and a powerful conversation piece. Standing proudly at 5x10.2 inches, the "Poopy Pants" figure is emblematic of the continued evolution of pop and street art, blurring the lines between humor, commentary, and protest.

    Joan Cornellà K-Love Green Art Toy by Joan Cornellà

    Purchase K-Love Green Art Toy by Joan Cornellà Limited Edition Vinyl Sculpture Collectible Artwork by Pop Street Artist. 2020 Limited Edition Artwork Size 5x7 New In Bag Printed Foot. Kim Jong-Un, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, is depicted in an unusual all-green suit, a creative take on his typically worn all-black attire. In his left hand, he gently clasps a small heart, and a faint smile softens his expression. In a striking fusion of political commentary and pop art aesthetic, the "K-Love Green Art Toy" stands out as a limited edition vinyl sculpture that captivates collectors and art enthusiasts alike. Crafted by Joan Cornellà, a renowned pop street artist whose work often toes the line between unsettling and humorous, this piece was introduced in 2020. It quickly became a sought-after item for its bold statement and vibrant execution. The sculpture is modest, measuring 4x5 inches, making it an intimate yet poignant addition to any collection. This vinyl artwork captures a distinctive portrayal of Kim Jong-Un, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, dressed not in his signature all-black ensemble but in an all-green suit. The choice of color could be seen as a playful twist on his usual public image or a more profound symbolic gesture towards life, vitality, or irony in the face of the leader's often austere demeanor. The Supreme Leader's typically stern facade is softened here; he is seen holding a diminutive red heart in his left hand and sporting a subtle smile. This dichotomy between the leader's usual representation and the gentle, almost childlike pose he strikes is emblematic of Cornellà's style, which often juxtaposes the grim facets of human nature with a deceptively cheerful visual narrative. Cornellà's work is characterized by its stark, often shocking, satirical edge, making bold statements through simple yet impactful imagery. This limited edition piece, which comes new in a bag with a printed foot, reinforces the artist's penchant for blending the macabre with the whimsical. "K-Love Green Art Toy" is not just a collectible; it's a slice of contemporary cultural commentary that challenges viewers to find the intersection of art, politics, and pop culture, encouraging a deeper look into the layers of meaning behind a seemingly straightforward figure. As it stands in silent conversation with those who encounter it, this artwork continues to resonate with the complexities and contradictions of the modern world.
