About Pop Art & Andrew Arhola
I always insist wonder about the attention span of ordinary people plastic arts, what can get the attention of a housewife or worker or government employee to a work of art, and this entails questioning question last about how closely artists audience public, and perhaps try to answer this question reflect usually the gradual isolation of artists about what matters and technical preoccupation with their cases, regardless of how popular they pray to him of the achievements in the areas of artistic expression.
