The next feature in our 'Spotlight on The World of Coca-Cola' series is Artist Burton Morris. Morris has a series of five paintings, collectively titled "Can't Stop the Pop" in the new Pop Culture Gallery exhibit at the World of Coke. In his art, Morris presents his personal world of popular American icons that put a delightful spin on everyday objects and motifs. In his post-Pop style, Morris boldly projects an enticing mood of happiness, high energy and fun. He first gained national attention in the 1990’s when his artwork was chosen to hang on the set of the popular NBC series “Friends”, and he has also created signature images and original paintings for the Academy Awards, Major League Baseball and the International Olympic Committee. In this video, he breaks down his approach to creating his art.
