King of Pop is a tribute item for the late Michael Jackson by ‘Ooo my design.’ Designed as traditional matryoshka dolls (which have smaller versions hidden inside progressively getting smaller as you go through the layers), King of Pop chronicles different iconic looks that Michael Jackson had throughout his career.
Ooo my design’s King of Pop starts off with a layer depicting a pale-skinned Michael that resembles the look he carried at the end of his career. The next layers include an homage to his famous thriller music video, and the look that he started with when he first hit the music scene with the Jackson 5.
These three figures from ooo my design represent the major life stages of one of the worlds most well-known pop stars. Michael Jackson truly was the King of Pop.
Known for his appetizing yet dangerous-looking sculptures, mixed-media artist Scott Hove will debut a new body of work at San Francisco’s Spoke Art this Thursday, May 2. Titled “Guns & Ecstasy,” Hove’s latest body of work was created with heavy topics borne in mind. Presenting candy-colored assault weapons decorated like extravagant birthday cakes, Hove uses the tension between the violent and tantalizing aspects of his work to probe issues surrounding America’s gun policies in light of the recent tragedies that have occurred around the country. In addition to the gun sculptures, Hove will debut an elaborate, labyrinthine installation. Take a look at a sneak peek at the installation and some shots from Hove’s studio courtesy of Francis Zera and check out the show at Spoke Art May 2- May 25.
