Description Pop art comes in many forms. I consider this one of them. Youll find here an ACTUAL, REAL mugshot of Janis Joplin. A mug shot of Janis Joplin from the Tampa, Florida Police Department. The black and white and sometimes color enhanced photograph shows three images of Joplin, the first is a full body shot with the time, day and year visible by way of a clock and calendar on the wall behind her (12:15 am, November 17, 1969). The other two images show Joplin in profile and a frontal portrait shot. During her November 16, 1969 performance at Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa Joplin shouted obscenities at the police while they tried to control an unruly crowd, reportedly telling the police, dont f- with these people, among other things. She was arrested by Tampa Police after the show. Shows Joplins information filled in (name, DOB, height, etc.) and her last known address as At Large. The charge was profanity. Here, remastered and enhanced, while remaining gritty and striking sometimes off-putting, but always compelling.
Tony Rubino, New York Member Since January 2014 Artist Statement Cool. Original. Affordable. Ready to hang. Welcome. Here you'll find some of my “fine art” pieces: stuff that seeks to comment on pop culture, celebrity, nostalgia and the current melees' of information received through technology. As a syndicated, daily-newspaper cartoonist, some of my work expresses my joy and love of comic art and my frustration at remaining a relevant pop artist in a progressively ailing industry. I achieve these goals by using a combination of, humor, iconology, parody, association and dichotomy — fused and juxtaposed to create high quality drivel. Don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like me to sign your print. I'm also happy to do custom portraits and commissioned artwork. In addition, color palettes can be changed on any of the prints you see here in order to fit the needs of your specific decor. Just ask and I'll make the adjustments.
