Pop culture pictures can't go out of style, because they're so deeply rooted in what's relevant. These pop culture pictures take various popular images and mash them together to create a comic style image.

The background to all these photos looks like a Major Lazer cover shot with the comic inspired fonts and bright outstanding colors. On top of this sea of colors are various pop culture clich├ęs and a variety of popular images. The use of a skull, gun and even a Cadbury egg point out the ubiquity of such symbols in a subtle way.

The visuals are super stylized and even look glazed and hyper-real. The over-exposure is what makes these images what they are and the content is so all over the place that it makes for a varied, interesting experience.
