ABOUT THE ART
Kidrobot proudly presents the intersection of pop art and pop culture as Mark Dean Veca reimagines Tweety in his signature oppositional-paradox style. Sitting in classic Tweety pose, this medium figure features sculpted gyri and sulci covering the entire surface belying the staggering intellect beneath that 'tweet' exterior. As Carlo McCormick stated, "the proliferation of optic information ignites a kind of brain-searing explosion." Yes, yes it does – BOOM!!
