Washington Post arts reporter Mark Jenkins wrote in a July 18, 2015 article, "In the world that Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein wrought, is it still possible to be a pop artist? Some may doubt it, but not John Stango." Jenkins draws out the similarities and differences between Stango's work and the works of his biggest influences. "Stango depicts such mid-'60s idols as John F. Kennedy, Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe - as well as superheroes and commercial insignias - with a mixture of reverence and giddiness," Jenkins writes. "Where Warhol did Brillo boxes and Campbell's soup cans, his successor goes for Cadillac, Chanel, Abolut - and Campbell's soup cans." Stango's mother, Frances Rockwell, and his cousin, famed American artist Norman Rockwell, would be proud.
