‘Pop art is not something started by an artist nor finished by an artist. I might find myself noticing something that comes out of a collective conscious. I suppose as a rule it cannot come out of an individual... I see myself in a position where I’m picking up on popular culture.’
(The artist quoted in R. Janssen, The Third Line, Perrotin & T. Ropac (eds.), Farhad Moshiri, Brussels 2010, p. 22).
