incorporated with the idea of Appropriation Art turning into an original artwork, and ideas inspired by the working methods of artists such as Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, and Andy Warhol, they often replicate and distribute existed images without the original creator's authorization or acknowledgement, but uses the images for different purposes in order to give new meaning to the so called "stolen" images. Michael Andrew Law uses this method often to take the cultural icons or iconic images that are familiar and almost representative to the internet generation. The visual style in iEgoism is also borrowed from German master artist Gerhard Richter's blur-ish photo painting, as well as Murakami Takashi's SuperFlat . young female figures. Calligraphy and glitter can been seen throughout the series, but in a variable manner; digital 3D models and found photographs had also been used, as well as manga characters. iEgoism / Hyper Pop Surrealism consists of 7000 sketches, paintings and prints, 20 sculptures and 100 video artworks.
