Art.com Celebrates History of Pop Culture with Exclusive Pop Ink! Collection
Acclaimed Charles S. Anderson Design Firm Presents Modern Prints that Merge Low Art and High Design
EMERYVILLE, CALIF. (August 14, 2013)—Art.com, the world’s leading online destination dedicated to experiencing and buying art, today introduced the expansive Pop Ink Collection. Created by the Charles S. Anderson Design firm using CSA Images, Pop Ink is the most extensive library of pop culture illustration and design elements in existence. The collection has something for everyone with more than 40,000 pieces that embody camp, kitsch, abstract, comic, mod, classic, beautiful, ornate and more. Combining unusual artifacts and design elements from the 20th century through today, the collection is an infinite visual universe of saccharine sweet, sometimes tongue in cheek and graphically powerful art.
“Pop Ink is one of the boldest and most robust collections of artwork that we have sold on Art.com to date, offering an unparalleled assortment of unique and memorable pieces for every customer,” said Ivy Ross, Chief Marketing Officer of Art.com Inc. “The one-of-a-kind collection captures the authenticity and detail of hand drawn art combined with digital coloring to give customers a personal piece of history for modern home décor.”
The CSA Images collection originated in the 1970’s and is now one of the world’s most comprehensive and highly-awarded archives of graphic illustrations, modern icons and design elements available. One of the world's leading modern design resources for the creation and preservation of print and pop culture, CSA Images include hand drawn original illustrations and photographs created by more than one hundred talented designers, artists and photographers, and are displayed in museum collections throughout the world. The partnership with Art.com marks the first time the CSA Images collection has been licensed for wall art.
“Thousands of prints in the Pop Ink Collection were specially created for Art.com, using images that we have been creating and compiling for nearly 40 years,” says Charles S. Anderson, Founder, Executive Creative Director, Pop Ink, CSA Images. “We've been approached by many other "art" companies over the years, but didn't want our work mixed in with crowd sourced collections that feature more quantity than quality, which can leave consumers overwhelmed and under inspired. We like the fact that Art.com carefully curates its art offering, which is a common trait among both companies.”
To create a part of the Pop Ink Collection for Art.com, CSA Images colored thousands of images to form more than 20,000 bizarre yet fascinating illustrations and designs, including icons, ornaments, patterns and objects, merging low art and high design for a (Post) modern world. Prices range from $14.99 to $349.99 and can be framed and sized to match the space you love.
