Pop Painting: A Review

Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at the painting tools, methods, and inspirations of one of the top artists working in the growing field of Pop Surrealism. For the first time, beloved best-selling author and artist Camilla d’Errico pulls back the curtain to give you exclusive insights on topics from the paints and brushes she uses and her ideal studio setup, to the dreams, notions, and pop culture icons that fuel the creation of her hauntingly beautiful Pop Surrealist paintings. 

With step-by-step examples covering major subject areas such as humans, animals, melting effects, and twisting reality (essential for Pop Surrealism!), Pop Painting gives you the sensation of sitting by Camilla’s side as she takes her paintings from idea to finished work. This front row seat reveals how a leading artist dreams, paints, and creates a successful body of work. For fans of Camilla and the underground art scene, aspiring artists looking to express their ideals in paint, and experienced artists wanting to incorporate the Pop Surrealist style into their work.


I’ve seen Camilla d’Errico over the years, her prints. And I even saw some of her works in some graphic novels. Pop Painting is absolutely filled with her beautiful works. Also this is going behind how Camilla d’Errico works, where she finds her inspirations.

Also something I found really cool about this book is 90% of this book is tips and tricks on how to make your art better. I thought it was a really neat and thoughtful thing to add into a book. I will not lie though when I say these tips may be helpful, but some of them might fly right over my head, being that I am in no way artistic.

Pop Painting is defiantly a beautiful  book, and is really something up and comings artists should have.
