Poverty Pop is a definition of a body of work that we have encountered in artist studios over the last few years. POVERTY POP was a group exhibition of artists who make work from found materials. Out of economic necessity, a generation of artists are recycling found objects and transforming this refuse into visual metaphors. The work reflects the economic times that we are living in and demonstrates the artists ingenuity to make art from discarded products. Poverty Pop is about urban folklorism.
