Object Description: The impact of American Pop art led to a change in de la Vega's artistic production. He adopted new acrylic techniques, beginning a series of psychedelic paintings that included Go Go Go. He also changed his iconography, filling his work with images of distorted men and women with allusions to the worlds of television, advertising, and consumer society. In this work, the female figure becomes a multi-headed, distorted monstrosity rendered in large, flat areas of color typical of silkscreen, a format frequently used by Andy Warhol and thus associated with Pop art.
