Cory Bennett Anderson: Heroes
Cory Bennett Anderson (Poulsbo) refers to his work as Neo-Pop, combining pop themes, iconic images, and neo-expressionist techniques to reflect modern society and its complexities.
An active muralist and community-based artist, Anderson displays a unique combination of urban street style with the use of found media and finds an endless supply of complex and relevant subject matter. Each painting evokes a sense of reverence, often mixed with nostalgia.
Anderson’s heroes range from political figures, writers and poets, musicians, actors, and other recognizable icons. He beckons the viewer to ponder their own heroes and to celebrate their contributions to our lives. Anderson notes: “I paint imagery that evokes beauty through story-telling and positive messages. I strive to elevate others through art. I like to think that by creating, I can affect or change the lives and the outlooks of people that I would otherwise never have the chance to affect.”
