We all recognise Jeff Koons balloon dog sculptures, and we also recognise the humourous versions of the balloon dog by Polish born and London based artist Whatshisname (Sebastian Burdon). Whatshisname has taken the balloon dog game to the next level and has smashed it right out of the park with his latest, unique and high end stylings…. introducing Jeff Balloonski!
In Whatshisnames own words:
“It is not a secret that my new sculpture draws influence from artworks of KAWS and Jeff Koons as well as continues the legacy of my previous artworks of balloon dogs in various poses.In mid-2019 I was on a search for a brand new style of sculptures, the new direction for my work. I didn’t want to create just one artwork but to create a platform for a range of artworks kept withing the confines of the unique and groundbreaking style. I wanted to create my own personal game-changer, a direction that changes everything and opens a vast range of possibilities for further development for the next 10 years. I eventually arrived at the very new and fun combination of balloon dogs and people.I call this style PopArtomica ©.
The name breaks down as follows: Pop art + Atomica = PopArtomicaPop art – (noun) art based on modern popular culture and the mass media, especially as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art values.
Atomic – (adjective) to describe someone or something of epic proportions usually to give praiseAfter many months of sketches, 3d design, and countless prototypes, I am happy to announce that the first member of PopArtomica family is here and his name is Jeff Balloonski. His surname is Balloonski becasue I wanted to include a little bit of Polish influence in it and in Poland all traditional surnames end with “ski” for example. Kowalski, Machalski, Kopciewski, Ostrowski etc.
