Cubism: a popular phrase uttered by rapper and actor Ice Cube, such as "There’s snakes out there this BIIIIIG?" or "There's already 35 episodes of the Are We There Yet? TV series? That's BIIIIIG!!" Also Cubism: the art form developed by Picasso, and now mimicked in far more relevant-to-you fashion by Miami Beach artist Tommervik, who Pablos-up pop culture just for your walls. Some of his best:
Darth Vader Dance: This sucker portrays Vader and Leia dancing and getting along like the actual father/daughter they are, and's part of an entire SW collection that includes twisty takes on R2D2, Jabba The Hutt, and the Millennium Falcon, which he painted like this because it can never quite seem to make it to Hyper(space)realism.
Deco Pee-Wee Herman: Everyone's favorite close friend of Chairy is portrayed appropriately sporting a red bow-tie and wearing mostly muted grays to match his signature coat, and has his head in his hands...what?! Not that one! Sicko.
Wash Machine Robin: Batman's masked sidekick, complete with his signature red/yellow cape, looks like he's been thrown in the spin cycle, a dilemma about which Cube would say, "well, at least you don’t have your name eternally attached to the 'Lindsay Goes Vegan Episode'".
