David Redon Remixes Vintage American Advertisements with Pop Icons

Through their music, the likes of Kanye West, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, and Outkast have grown to become worldwide symbols of American pop culture. This is a stark contrast from the past, where fictional icons and domestic brands – Rosie the Riveter, Uncle Sam, Palmolive – were all but cultural ambassadors for the U.S. With a subtle sense of humor, French artist David Redon has reworked the new icons into the old ones, presenting contemporary pop culture symbols across a series of boldly-colored illustrated posters. Check out more of Redon’s work at his portfolio site after enjoying a preview above.
