Jasper Johns After exploring several other American artists associated with Pop art who working in the 50's and 60's (Warhol, Thiebaud, Lichtenstein) we looked at the work of American artist Jasper Johns (1930) who crosses categories from Pop-art, to Neo-dada, to Abstract expressionism. The name of the game is EMPHASIS and BALANCE. For this project we focused on his letter art. We noticed that his letters are simultaneously camouflaged and revealed against a busy background.
