Campbell La Pun

Campbell La Pun, an artist originally from New Zealand, currently resides and creates in the vibrant city of Tokyo. Situated at the intersection of Eastern and Western cultures, Tokyo pulsates with an exhilarating fusion of energy, colour, and light.

Immersed in "the original megacity," La Pun draws inspiration from its vivacity and channels it into his art, particularly through the lens of urban pop art. He seeks to capture the essence of the modern world by reflecting its aesthetics.

The bustling metropolis constantly bombards him with advertising, pop culture imagery, a dense population, and a cutting-edge economy. These diverse stimuli become a wellspring of ideas, which La Pun skilfully translates into stunning artworks on wood and canvas using meticulously crafted stencils and spray paints.
