VANGART and PEC are honouring the well-known Knar
This time embroidered, the corpulent bird is printed in 4 unique copies. Embroidered on lace, or on faded jeans, Pec continues his work of declension around his totem animal. Pec admits that he doesn't paint birds anymore, except if he is asked to. His Knar becomes a symbol, and its coloured reproduction can only make us think of Andy Warhol's famous work.
Andy Warhol decided to paint the Marilyn Diptych a few weeks after Monroe's death. He found in her a fusion of two constant themes: death and the cult of celebrity. By copying the same image several times, he evokes her presence in the media. Like Andy Warhol, Pec invokes an icon. It is clear from his work that advertising and the bulimia of images are subjects that interest him. Moreover, the title of the work POP PEC seems to refer to the Pop Art movement, often tinged with repetitions, reproductions and bright colours.
