“Do you know that the Campbell’s Soup Company has not sent me a single can of soup?.” -Andy Warhol
BNO’s Pop & Post-War auction offers a generous representation of art spanning these periods, but with a common theme. Pop Art sought to reflect the social values and environment from which it sprang. Thus, the artists focused on the preoccupations shared by most American consumers: food, cars and romance.
Typically, this was achieved using brash, or satirical, imagery with strong visual impact. And if they were criticized for concerning themselves with such subject matter, they could simply say they were simply (in Shakespeare's words) "holding the mirror up to nature", or in their case "modern society".
If nothing else, Pop Art was the Post-War expression of a world wholly preoccupied with the pursuit of materialism. The revitilization of social commentary by urban and street artists has combined the sensibilities of Pop Art, with contemporary and topical subject matters- providing a re-birth of art used to reflect popular culture.
The satirical and sometimes ironic commentary of Pop Art continues today in the Street and Contemporary Art movements of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Thrashbird, DEATH NYC and other street artists.
We are thrilled to offer the works of the following artists in our Pop & Post War Art Auction: DEATH NYC, Shepard Fairey, Thrashbird, D*Face, WIJ…, Andy Warhol, Victor Vasarelly, Istvan Bernath, Daniel Dust, Tom Everhart, Mahi Tarek, and John Paul Fauves.

"We need to remind ourselves that contemporary art is first of all a form of conceptual gymnastics, in which we learn to coexist with what we don't understand." - Massimiliano Gioni
BNO is delighted to offer a carefully curated and thought-provoking selection of Contemporary Art. Contemporary Art is the art of today, produced by artists who are living in the twenty-first century. It provides an opportunity to reflect on contemporary society and the issues relevant to ourselves and the world around us. Contemporary Artists work in a globally influenced, culturally diverse, and technologically advancing world. Their art is a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that challenge traditional boundaries and defy easy definition.
Diverse and eclectic, contemporary art is distinguished by the very lack of a uniform, organizing principle, ideology, or ‘ism.’ It is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality.
Contemporary artists in this auction include: Claudia Guillen, Mark Kostabi, Billy Barkley, Jill Joy, Popovy Sisters, Hossam Dirar, Alex Sher, Tadas Zaicikas, Dulm, Irina Daylene, Laurent Proneur, Mathias Duhamel, Alex Echo, Cordovelian, Albert Castaneda, WIJ…, Irina Volova, Pamela Gedeon, Ann McFerran, and Oscar Meza.
We look forward to your joining us for this exciting and innovative auction.
