Tom Thewes
Detroit, Michigan
Tom Thewes fiercely believes in the fundamentally powerful relevance of the group of artists who used the visual vocabulary of popular culture (cartoons, rock posters, advertising, and graffiti) to communicate and express themselves in a way that broke through the worn ivory tower elitism of the then pervasive over-intellectualized art institutions. He then began to implement his grand vision for his Detroit gallery ©POP as the leading proponent of these brave underground art rebels by renovating a three story, former trophy shop, bar, Post Office, and den of iniquity in Detroit's Midtown Cultural Center into a world-class exhibition space and multi-discipline focal point for this pop-culture revolution. The newly improved cultural showcase opened to much fanfare and excited expectation with a "Grand Re-Opening" exhibition entitled, "© Stands For..." which included all of the ©POP regulars plus names like Mark Ryden, H.R. Giger, Robert Williams, Eric White, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Isabel Samaras, and many more.
