Babyak’s work has evolved from realist figurative images in oils, acrylics and charcoals, to abstraction and eventually back to realism, primarily in acrylic. There is a sense of movement to his work, whether the subject be animate or inanimate, which can be attributed to Mr. Babyak’s background in dance and music. His paintings are a direct reflection of an exploration of feelings about both the physical and imagined, resulting in work that possesses an intangible aspect that somehow always strikes a familiar note.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND ME
Thousands of miles and a couple of lifetimes away from the ‘Wild West’, in northern England a young boy plays in the streets of a post war industrial town.
Using the power of his imagination, the backdrop of his life is transformed. Onto the grey industrial landscape, he projects the arid desolate panorama of the ‘Wild West’, with big skies and bright colors. In his dreams he can ride horses on the plains and conquer the wilderness of the wild frontiers. He can be the romantic loner, or be part of the posse; the Sherriff or the outlaw....
This collection of work provides a reflective insight into that time of innocence (or innocence lost as the case may be) as experienced through the eyes of a young boy from the UK, who grew up to be an internationally successful artist. Now in his fifties, his childhood passion is fused with the skills you would expect from an artist of his stature; his work resonates with the energy and duality of both skill and innocence, a heady blend of competence and inspirational naivety, derived from the child who still deeply resides within the man,yet freed by the power of his art.

.Warhol fans and collectors alike will also have the opportunity to purchase Andy Warhol works for A PENNY! Yes, for a penny, Warhol collectors can own a second piece by the legend himself. If a collector purchases any Warhol work at full price, the galleries will sell an additional piece titled “I Love Your Kiss Forever Forever”, a lithograph from the famous “1¢ Life” book for a penny while supplies last.
This comprehensive print collection is both an art collector’s dream and an art history lesson. Not only is it a wide ranging assortment that beautifully defines Warhol’s mammoth career, it is also one full of surprises…Who would have thought that ‘while supplies last’ some discerning collectors will be able to acquire a second Warhol for a penny?
Works to be featured will include prints of the famous Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Truman Capote, Mao and the Campbell’s Soup Cans. Also featured for sale at the exhibition is Andy Warhol’s much coveted personal Polaroid camera, which was recently featured by Digital Trends and PopPhoto.com.
Andy Warhol was one of the 20th century’s most influential artists and cultural critics. As one of the key players in the POP art movement, he developed his own method of screen-printing in the early 1960s, and it wasn’t long before he was creating groundbreaking works that brought attention to American pop culture and the lifestyle of Hollywood celebrities, changing how we look at art – and ourselves – forever.

The glamorous sex goddess, Marilyn Monroe.
Max is back with an electrifying collection of over 40 one-of-a-kind new works of Miss Monroe. In each painting he uses an iconic photograph of this Hollywood legend taken by the great fashion photographer Milton Greene, whose well-known friendship with Monroe produced these gorgeous photographs.

“To have POP International Galleries host the return of the POP art icon Peter Max to New York is a rare honor. Add Marilyn Monroe to the mix, with Peter’s already unmistakably vibrant palette, and you have a legendary show on your hands!” said Jeff Jaffe, owner, POP International Galleries. “When people see these spectacular works, they will understand why Peter Max has remained at the top of his game for decades. They are simply amazing.”
With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his energetic colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Often referred to as America’s, "Painter Laureate", Max has had the distinct honor of painting the last six Presidents of the United States, as well as some of the world's most notable figures from heads of state to professional athletes, musicians and stars of stage and screen.

“One More Saturday Night”
Debuts a Truly Rare Exhibition of Grateful Dead Photographs And Backstage Passes Tour Iconography.
It’ll be “One More Saturday Night”
at POP International Galleries on Saturday, September 7, 2013! Featuring rarely before seen photographs and tour iconography of one of the greatest legends in music history, Grateful Dead, “One More Saturday Night” promises to be the POP event of the season; giving Deadheads, art and music lovers a once in a lifetime opportunity to see t
ruly historic imagery that captured one of the greatest bands ever.
Featuring the photography of Roberto Rabanne, “One More Saturday Night” will showcase rarely before seen images of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann on tour throughout their storied career. Rabanne often toured with the band after befriending Jerry Garcia who gave the photographer VIP access and allowed him to do several studies of the group over the years.
When the Grateful Dead took the stage, the venue issued thousands of tickets, but only a fortunate few were able to get their hands on the illustrious Backstage Pass. Antonio Reonegro was commissioned by the band to create unique artworks for backstage passes that told the story, with each tour representing a chapter in the book. The chapters all worked around a common theme, like a unique geographical region or an adaptation of pop culture imagery.
Tony went on to create 155 backstage passes for the band over a six-year period. Due to their ephemeral nature, these rarely seen mementos had all but disappeared with collectors paying large sums for actual passes. But now, this limited edition collection of work released by Reonegro, have allowed for the passes
and never-before-seen designs to rise from the Dead!

Peter Tunney, the legendary New York artist, lives life to fullest. As life itself is the greatest artistic achievement, Peter brings art and life to everything and everyone he encounters. A gum wrapper, one hubcap, photographs of photographs, evidence of his actual footsteps, a leaf from Bhutan, a beautiful nude, these and everything is captured, collected, catalogued and added to his overflowing pockets, or left for another day, another time, each piece waiting for its own chance to become a part of Peter Tunney’s art. It is like reading notes to oneself left in the margin of a favorite book. Peter works painstakingly and meticulously to bring to life the art that resides in all things.
It is difficult to separate the life and the work of Peter Tunney, because in many ways they are one and the same. His work, which frequently mixes and varies in media, functions as relics of the constant performance that is Peter Tunney's life. His work is a part of a bigger story, one that has taken him across every inch of the globe, seen him tackle Wall Street, travel out of this world and land back down to earth where he declared himself once and for all, an artist. Having been around, Peter is able to produce works that probe our culture with authority, by mining images from newspapers, magazines, and art books and reinterpreting them through his own unique perspective. Through his work, Tunney offers wisdom from someone who has crossed over to the other side, and made it back alive to tell the tale. His recent works, where refreshingly optimistic phrases and quotes are colorfully painted over collaged headlines, serve as a subtle attack on our culture of fear and ennui. As our media sources relay stories of death, destruction, hysteria and greed, Peter whimsically overpowers them with his own headlines, such as "THE TIME IS ALWAYS NOW", "DON'T PANIC", "BELIEVE", "GRATTITUDE" and "CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE EVERYTHING". In doing so he functions as his own media machine, redefining ways for us all to interact with and understand the world around us.
Peter Tunney lives and works in New York. His work has been included in exhibitions and private collections around the world, and is currently represented by Pop International Galleries.
In 2001 Richard Scott quit his very successful ‘day job’ as technical illustrator-turned-IT specialist to pursue his passion for art full-time. Born in Britain in 1968, but now residing in South Africa, he started drawing at an early age, always scribbling down ideas, but it was to take him almost 30 years to arrive at his vocation of fully fledged artist.
His work exhibits some characteristics that may be associated with the 1960's Pop Art movement, yet it defies simplistic categorization, oscillating as it does between naively decorative and super contemporary. Scott’s vision is personal and reflective. Though his images sometimes appear simplistic, they form a complex and coherent whole. Using a variety of painting, sculpture, drawing and graphic media, he borrows images from the world of popular and consumer culture to convey his social, sexual and perceptual messages. Cars, planes, trees, nude women, and African animals combine to form Scott’s personal iconography. He constantly modifies and re-examines old imagery, but when viewed in terms of ideas rather than chronology, the stylistic cohesion of his work becomes apparent.
Above all though, Scott is always passionate about his art, his creative processes and his conceptualization of ideas. Like numerous other Pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, he values the creative process as highly as the finished product.
