A Pop Art cartoon, showing a black and white striped canvas in the style of Bridget Riley.
The painting is of a product bar code.
The idea is that although the canvas looks like a piece of abstract art it is in fact a painting of a real object as represented by its bar code.
The cartoon is partly a comment on the digitisation of the physical world.
A cartoon about pop art, op art, modern art, Bridget Riley, digitization, artistic representation.
