Artist's description:

This is an unofficial Broadcast by The British Legion

This is "Pop Art" is made by the "Poppy Artist" to commemorate the Remembrance Sunday on Sunday 13th November 2016, by The British Legion and the future anniversaries. It is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth as a day "to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts". It is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918.

Across The United Kingdom, Remembrance Sunday is marked by ceremonies at local war memorials in most cities, towns and villages, attended by civic dignitaries, ex-servicemen and women (many are members of the Royal British Legion and other veterans' organisations), members of local armed forces regular and reserve units (Royal Navy and Royal Naval Reserve, Royal Marines and Royal Marines Reserve, Army and Territorial Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Auxiliary Air Force), military cadet forces (Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and Air Training Corps as well as the Combined Cadet Force) and youth organisations (e.g. Scouts, Boys' Brigade, Girls' Brigade and Guides). Wreaths of remembrance poppies are laid on the memorials and two minutes' silence is held at 11 a.m. Church bells are usually rung half-muffled, creating a sombre effect.

The "Poppy" is a symbol to wear or shown to remember the End of the Wars, and the general public are encouraged to buy and wear a "Poppy". The Artist has taken the Collection Box (Can) that you pay a donation to buy a "Poppy", and marked it with "POP" short for "Poppy" and refer to "Pop" Art Movement. "Artist" shortened to "Art" on the Can. Pop Art primary colours of Blue, Red & Yellow have been used for the text. The Pop Art colours follow a sequence, of Blue, Red then Yellow for "Pop" then "Art", and this is a Concept used in Conceptual Art.

The Artist has placed the Collection Can of a background colour of Red, which he has zoomed into the tray of Poppies which sits alongside each other.
