Corey ‘Oda’ Popp, (born 1984 in South Carolina), recounts wanting to be an artist since early childhood, where he spent his time divided between Nevada with his father, where he would go on walks in the desert in search of petrified wood, and Alabama with his mother, who gave Oda his first microscope. Oda’s paintings are reflections of those early years looking through a microscope. With larger than life paintings that have an in-depth tangibility and executed through a high level of detail. His work truly marries his two passions; of the unearthed hidden beauty right under our feet, and contemporary art. The art of Oda can be found in museums, collections and exhibitions world wide, where he hopes to share his passion, and rekindle that childhood wonderment on a global scale.
