Born in the Midwest and a graduate of the Art School at School of the Ozarks, Popi Cotrell has been a professional artist for over 30 years with an emphasis on creating American Iconic Pop Art through reverse painting for the past decade. Popi’s unique methodology in creating reverse art on window frames, mirrors, and other forms of glass, has set him apart from others in the art world.
In the 1800s, a technique called “reverse painting” was popular for lamps and glass. Today, Las Vegas resident Popi Cotrell scours lots to find old windows. He paints the underside of his antique windows with acrylic paint in all sorts of designs. When the light shines through, the result is colorful, beautiful art.
His creations have sold all over the world and many representative pieces are hanging in multiple private collections and galleries today.
