SAINT IGGY

Classicism, digital aesthetics, and pop,

In SAINT IGGY we see the muscular upper body of a man in a classic pose, dressed in a kind of cape. Whereas the exposed upper body showing muscles and skin are painted in great detail, almost in 3D, the clothing is two-dimensional, looking almost like a collage. Most likely it is computer generated, and the contrast with the classical – even god-like – depiction of the torso is strong. Although we can only see half of the face, we know that it is Iggy Pop. Classicism, digital aesthetics, and pop are combined here in a unique way.
