"Bright, saturated use of colors and layers of tweaks with heavy brushstrokes is my signature. My main inspiration comes from the American pop-art movement. I am fascinated by unique/pretty/ugly/deformed faces and addicted to food. That’s why I call myself The Face Chef."

Življenjepis

Tadej Oblak (also know as Pop—Art by Tadej) is a young talented artist who lives in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) since 2016. He is fascinated and inspired by “hundred faces, million face expressions”. Everything comes together in his portraits of legends and icons. Recently he also started working on pop products like famous drinks and collectable items.


Known for his bright colors and edgy motives, he draws inspiration from the American 50’s pop-art movement, with a hint of Modernistic and an Abstract touch.

He studied visual communications at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana (Slovenia) and started exploring other places to deepen his knowledge of old traditional graphic techniques in Zagreb (Croatia) at the Academy of Fine Arts. The road ultimately led him to Amsterdam where he follows his passion and creates his artwork in his own studio.
