Edo Pop

The spotlight on ‘urban culture’ is for contextual reason only. Urban issues or themes have given artists a lot of events, cases and issues that are challenging to be responded to; it is a general understanding that the changes in the society and the changes in the whole nations are coming from the changes in the urban space. Artists are challenged to take a stance about all the changes: either they have to go with the sweep of the flow or they gather their resolve and stand against it no matter how impossible it may seem.
