Super Pop Boy - painter
"True luxury is the ability to remain a child for as long as possible! Childhood knows no problems - Anything is possible!"

The German painter Super Pop Boy, who according to his information was born on Mars, at an undefined time, studied painting and design at the academy JAK in Hamburg. After graduation, he moved to Berlin, where he now lives and works.

The picture series "Andy" emerges via a hole into another world

Super Pop Boy started painting on large canvas, but could not fill them in a manner he found acceptable. Thus, he painted over anything he wasn't satisfied with, until just the important parts remained visible in circular bubbles: the beginning of his Andy series. The viewer gazes into other worlds through artificially created holes on the paintings, which are always concerned with Andy, although ironically, he is never to be seen.

An artist with Peter Pan Syndrome

Using acrylic and neon colors, Super Pop Boy creates optimistic, energetic, humorous Pop Art paintings depicting everyday situations. It is all about the desire to never grow up, about dreams and traveling to Mars. The artist invites the viewer of his works to journey through childhood. He does this by taking symbols from the 80s and 90s like Cartman, Super Mario or rockets and compiles them in ways that allow new worlds to arise.

A talented newcomer with a worldwide reputation

The artist has participated in numerous exhibitions in Berlin and abroad. Even the near east has succumbed to the childish charm of his works: very recently, his pictures were on display at the international luxury trade fair ADIHEX in Abu Dhabi. Super Pop Boy's works can be found in private collections across the globe, including in New York, Berlin, Oslo, Hamburg and Nuremberg.
