Hailing from the Central American country of Costa Rica, artist John Paul Fauves has unveiled his latest exhibition at Dopeness Art Lab in Taipei, Taiwan. As a skilled artist and now sculptor, he has reworked some of the most iconic cartoon characters into a series of abstract works.

Entitled “MI/ME”, the exhibition features a long line of experimental paintings and handmade masks which largely portray unique interpretations, for what he calls “New Pop Expressionism”. According to JM Art Management, his latest show “relates to themes that interact with cultural and social media chaos on a daily basis.”

Praised by the likes of American contemporary artist Ashley Longshore, Fauves’ first solo exhibition brings a new bold and colourful reflection “of capitalist society”. For more information, visit the JM Art Management website, and watch the video below a further look into his work. “MI/ME” will be on show until August 19.
