“Good buy” it’s a graphic pop art piece as a tribute to the American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein.
In this piece I wanted to portray in a very objective way how consumerism it’s a filthy business, capable of taking us to our own death. That’s why I decided to use “hands” as the authors of this process, using a lifeless one (product) and the other (consumer) who buys everything that is presented to him even if it’s dangerous or deadly, making a graphic dialogue between them.
Also there’s a game between words replacing “bye” for “buy”, to emphasize the concept of death, banality & consumerism on the piece.
