Mickey on Coke
The series of "Mickey on Coke", is about iconic symbols and the effects of a sugary pop drink. I have always wanted to create something from popular culture and this was the concept. Coke is high on sugar content with 10 teaspoons of sugar on a can of soda and high on high fructose corn syrup. The caffeine from the Cola makes the eyes to dilate and the body produces more dopamine that stimulates a pleasure feeling. Other iconic logos has made it's way into the series. Combining the popular images of Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse, and the Happy Face, the artist has produced a Pop Art Expression painting from popular icons.
