Looking through this pop culture series is like a nostalgic head rush; it's all so comfortably familiar but a lot more colorful and artsy.

Using everything she can get her hands on from beads to money to computer hardware and toys, Argentina-based artist Elisa Insua is inspired by everything pop culture.

The artist's pop culture series uses certain items that almost all of us can relate to because of their popularity in popular culture such as a Playstation controller, a portrait of Darth Vader, toy guns and iconic logos.

Playing with texture and color, Insua’s works are accurate and cheerful. Most of her pieces look like mosaic pieces of art but after a deeper look, the playfulness of what they represent takes over.
