As an exclusive collaboration between the contemporary artist Whatshisname and the Limoges-based company K.olin Tribu comes to this limited edition of 50 Whatshisname Porcelain Popek Black sculpture. This beautiful 12" tall porcelain sculpture features the iconic Popek character designed by Whatshisname inspired in the playful yet extraordinary character of the pop art movement. Whatshisname's Popek aims to stray away from the boredom brought by the monotony of everyday life by refreshing the viewer’s mind through the smiles brought by the Balloon Dog POPek’s playful and vibrant aesthetic. The discovery of Kaolin during the 18th century in the French region near the city of Limoges, southwest of Paris rapidly made the city known for its unique porcelain production. The distinctiveness of Limoges porcelain products is also attributed to the unique mixture of minerals in addition to Kaolin found in this particular region, as well as the attention detail and high-quality standards demanded by expert craftsmen. Since 2009 K.Olin Tribu partners with recognized illustrators, graphic designers, artists, and graffiti artists to produce unique porcelain collection pieces in the city of Limoges where it is located, marking all of its products Porcelaine de Limoges, France; attesting to their quality and uniqueness.

The artist behind Whatshisname, Sebastian Burdon, was born in 1982 in Eastern Poland. He is living and working today in London, UK. Retelling that his first artwork was produced at the age of 7, Burdon demonstrates his early creativity. In 2006, Burdon moved to the United Kingdom and worked as an assistant for renowned artists and designers. There, he demonstrated his multifaceted artistic skills in digital and traditional mediums of expression.
Burdon adopted the alias Whatshisname after reflecting on the difficulty of often remembering other artists’ names and thus inquiring “What’s his name?” On the other hand, he found inspiration in the band Green Day’s song “Whatshername”. In addition, Burdon comments his art aims to motivate the viewer to perceive the world around. Not to mention that he does it through an unorthodox and derisive lense. Moreover, the artist manages to use his art as a much more eloquent.
Whatshisname art is able to express what words come short when describing.
