Originated by the ICA in London, it attempts to show comic, comic-book and animated cartoon. The exhibition is about 'Comic' Art and not about comics. Its thrust is to show the 'art literate' (or CIRCA readers) the complex.

In the work, Bivar creates hyperrealistic portraits in a pared-down, primary color palette that recalls the work of Pop Art legend Roy like Lichtenstein, this Contemporary Pop artist incorporates comic book iconography into his work—quite literally.
