DONŪPOP: A unique art movement has emerged combining the dynamic and interrelated worlds of comics, anime and hip-hop, with elements of modern art. It celebrates its multi-cultural, international influence on science fiction, action and adventure and other confluences within and surrounding present day artistic culture. It's defined by an inspired, original approach to existing entertainment media that redefines the media itself.

In the spirit of this, R. Jackson has coined this new genre “DONŪ, in tribute to famed hip-hop producer J Dilla, whose last work, the magnum opus “Donuts” left an indelible mark on that industry. R. Jackson & Caiphus are pushing DONŪ into the realm of Pop Art.

With DONŪPOP: Objects of Desire, they explore the meaning of desire as it relates to spirituality in the context of popular culture. This new work challenges viewers to examine their desires and the reason they exist.
