With regard to the hip aesthetic sensibility of Warhol, Haring, and Basquiat, Finster's works are sometimes judged to be simply unconscious folksy variations on the New Yorkers' ironic pop-cartoon aesthetic of commercial marketability in an age of ubiquitous mechanical reproduction. This seems, however, too much like an interpretive judgement.
