AMERICAN PATRIOTIC POP ARTIST, JOHN STANGO
GALLERY AT STUDIO BURKE
John Stango paints in the vein of such artists as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, LeRoy Neiman, and Peter Max.
HARDCORE AMERICAN PATRIOTISM inspires his works along with vintage signage, pop-culture, retro advertising, pop icons, B-movies, mid-century modernism, magazines, and noir films.
Batman and Elvis, Audrey Hepburn and Lucky Strike, and Mickey Mouse and Heineken are some of the well-known subjects of Stango's paintings
"Stango depicts such mid-'60s idols as John F. Kennedy, Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe – as well as superheroes and commercial insignias"
"– with a mixture of reverence and giddiness," Jenkins writes. "Where Warhol did Brillo boxes and Campbell's soup cans, his successor goes for Cadillac, Chanel, Abolut – and Campbell's soup cans."
JOHN STANGO works out of a historic warehouse outside of Philadelphia.
Stango's mother, Frances Rockwell, and his cousin, famed American artist Norman Rockwell, would be proud.
