Johnny Romeo "Electric Boogaloo" @ MOSMAN, Friday 8-17 December, 2017
“ELECTRIC BOOGALOO is in many ways my love letter to hip hop and Pop culture. I’ve always admired the intrepid spirit of the early hip-hop pioneers, and the ways they used and reinterpreted the music and dance that surrounded them to create completely new forms of art. I definitely see parallels between the adventurous experimentation of hip-hop in the early 1980s, and my own approach to Pop culture sampling. At the same time, my rediscovery of the works of Pop provocateur Mel Ramos had me immediately drawn back to his kitsch fusion of brand names and pin up girls. The paintings in ELECTRIC BOOGALOO reflect this duality, between the rhythmic pull and street-hardened lyricism of hip-hop, and the boisterous Technicolour energy of Pop.” - Johnny Romeo
