Pop Art: A movement at the heart of Beckley’s art
Pop Art, renowned for its easily recognizable images and its vibrant color palette, is the cornerstone of Beckley’s work. He relies on this style to give his works an aspect that is both accessible and visually impactful.
The influence of Street Art and abstraction in the use of the stencil.
Beckley’s art isn’t limited to Pop Art. He also draws from the raw energy of street art to bring an extra dimension to his creations. Thus, the stencil, characteristic of street art, is a central element of the work presented.
An abstract and colorful background
But he doesn’t stop there. Beckley delights in playing with abstraction to design a dynamic and richly colored background. This audacious mix of elements from Pop Art, street art, and abstraction gives the work a fascinating depth and originality.
