Perhaps it's the colours and symmetry that shout Mondrian.
However, changing the blue to be less navy and adding stars does make this more diverse and adds a bit of whimsy and mass-com appeal.
Not sure that this is complete but maybe it is. Would a coating of something make any difference? Perhaps the stars would stick on longer. But part of Pop Art is its transient nature, it's build-in self-destruction.
Thank-you for coming on the journey with me.
