Splattered with color and otherworldly charm.

A product of the ever-defiant 1960’s, pop art has always been a means of deviating from the norm. In fact, the origins of pop art in North America were initially a response by artists at the time to the rigid “rules” of art that had been set in place. Santa Cruz-based artist Caia Koopman is adding her own touch to the pop art phenomenon through her breathtaking series of pop-surrealist tattooed girls.

Reminiscent of fine artists like Audrey Kawasaki and Amy Sol, Koopman adds her own flair to the genre by creating bright, vividly detailed tattooed women that seem almost plastic in nature, as if they’re dolls come to life. The result is an impossibly perfect dreamscape, splattered with color and otherworldly charm.
