I feel that Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is it’s self part of Pop(ular) culture  and is ingrained into a specific generations up bringing. It ultimately transcends that generation gap where a film made at a similar time (1994) could have stuck in the past as memories. But pulp fiction doesn’t it feels current.

Tarantino constantly references Pop culture, through; TV advertisements, food packaging, music, children’s cartoons, even printed fabric. All of which I feel is used by Tarantino to convey how we consume and have “POP” items around us in our lives. His use of violence also lends itself to the large majority of peoples idea of cinema and what is important in action films.

Things blowing up, drug taking, passionate sex, people being shot, sliced and generally injured is popular. audiences what to see it. Tarantino includes this violence in his films but in a way which I think is different to a regular repetitive action films, due to it’s snappy dialogue, diverse narrative structure. But most importantly it’s POP aesthetic.


POP goes the weasel





YAYOI KUSAMA  a very well known Japanese artist. Famous for her drawings, sculptures and in both her polka dots. Her art being very bright and “POPI” brings this interest to the table. Young and adult people can enjoy her work and can relate to her pieces.

After having successful exhibitions both in London, NY and between other cities as well Kusama parter her style and her designs to Louis Vuitton house. Before you pay at entrance and “ENJOY” the show, now you can pay the SHOW and enjoy the “entrance”… a polite way of saying that in my opinion when this kind of things happen is not always good. for me is not always good to make POPULAR ART = POPULAR MARKETING which in my opinion is definitely not the same.
