The "Grandson of Pop Art” Returns Home
He says of all the ways his graphic and colorful art has been presented, he's most impressed with the Heinz History Center's current exhibit. The Pittsburgh native is given a full retrospective, from his earliest art at age 3 to his evolution into the international spotlight.
Morris’s style is described as bold, colorful, and energetic, true Pop Art. The exhibition includes his inspirations from wood cuts to comics, including the likes of Captain Marvel and Captain America. Morris admits he owes much of his success and inspiration to Andy Warhol.
The exhibit Poptastic! The Art of Burton Morris will be on display in the Heinz History Center until February 23, 2014.
