6PM-9PMJon Pemberton is a Special Education teacher, and during the summers he creates his pop-art paintings. He went to art school in Denver, where he first felt free to explore his love of materials, process, and color.
"Every piece is special to me in some way. The subject matter of each piece is something that I enjoy to a point where it has become a part of who I am. Regardless of the seriousness, or lack there of, of these pieces, they represent aspects of myself that I take very seriously. I nerd out to Miyazaki movies, such as Spirited Away. I got into reading as a kid through comic books. Now, I teach reading to students, still using comic books to spark interest. The Stan Lee piece is special to me because of that. What can I say about Beyoncé. She is the queen. I mean, have you heard Formation? It is a perfect song. Long live the queen."
