KEN AROK & KEN DEDES
Talking about cross cultural thing, basically i was curious about the legend or the folklore in the entire world. I'd love to choose the typical romance of the Roy Lichtenstein's Pop Art and the romance from the Javanese Sanskrit Literature. Roy Lichtenstein always has a deep melancholy love story behind his artworks which contains some dramas of a couple, and so does Javanese folklore. The reason i prefer romance of the Singosari Kingdom as the main object is the tragedy inside the kingdom itself, which mentioning the dramas, the war, and even the magic which figuratively added into the story. They got something similiar, in particular about romance and tragedy. In conclusion, i'd like to blend the scene of romance of Ken Arok and Ken Dedes with the taste of American's Pop Art.
