Post Pop: East Meets West @ The Saatchi Gallery

This exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery brings together a couple of hundred works by 110 artists from China, the Former Soviet Union, Taiwan, the UK and the USA, celebrating Pop Art's legacy.
Post Pop: East Meets West examines why Pop Art has had such a powerful influence over artists from world regions that have had very different and sometimes opposing ideologies.
This has been my favourite exhibition of the year so far. I couldn’t believe that the whole exhibition is free! I’ve paid for exhibitions that haven’t been half as interesting! A few of the stand out pieces within the gallery for me are:

- Jeff Koons … Three Ball Total Equilibrium Tank
- Alexander Kosolapov's Hero, Leader, God
- Gu Wenda's United Nations: Man and Space (Made of human hair, white glue and burlap)
- Tom Sachs Nutsy’s McDonald’s
- Rostislav Lebedev’s A Dream Comes True
- Leonid Sokov’s Two Profiles (Stalin and Marilyn)
- Vitaly Komar & Alexanfer Melamids Post-art No 1 (Warhol)
- Wang Guangyi’s Great Criticism

If you get a chance to check this exhibition out before it closes on February 23rd, do it. It’s definitely worth it!

I couldn’t help but to photograph pretty much everything in the gallery, so here’s a few of those pics:
