"What is funky pop? FUNKY POP is a Jersey City art movement. A response to the New York school of pop. The history of Jersey City is a blue collar, a gritty working craftsmanship. That history combined with the influx of a new white-collar culture is what has brought you funky pop. The artist responds to this phenomenon of 99-cent store, hair wigs shops, and fast food restaurants, and the like. And the new upscale restaurants that follow. Funky pop is a response to high tech meeting railroad tracks."
