Pop Art Potter: Art collection inspired by “Potter” on display, the percentage of sales benefit Lumos
While the Harry potter franchise has long since become a big part of pop culture, you wouldn’t necessarily call your type Potter cultivated fan. However, there seem to be some talented individuals who luckily see magic and try to bring the wizarding world into the fine art. Scottish artist Stuart McAlpine Miller’s Potter– inspired collection of oil paintings called Revelations: a portrait of magic is currently on display at the International Convention Center (ICC) in Birmingham, England until October 23. Even more magical, part of the proceeds from the sale of each painting will go to the Lumos Foundation.
The culmination of six years of work, Miller’s stunning pop art paintings feature abstract and seemingly transparent layers resembling collages of various images on what appear to be posters of characters from the Potter series of films. What makes it even more impressive is that while collages tend to put all kinds of diverse mediums together to form something new, Miller painted everything, including the incredible likenesses of the actors in the movie. Potter movies.
It’s pretty wonderful that the Wizarding World can inspire such a great artist to see the franchise through new and interesting lenses. Fortunately, Miller is also trying to help a good cause with his pieces as 14% of the net sale price of each painting will be donated to Lumos. For those who can afford to buy, you will get a beautiful artwork from Potter art and contribute to a noble charity that aims to improve care systems and end the institutionalization of children.
Hopefully the ICC will start to see more cultured individuals wearing robes and carrying chopsticks.
