Pop art is one of the major art movements of the Twentieth Century. Pop art was an artistic movement that emerged in the early 1950s in Britain and at the same time in the late 1950s in the United States.
Pop art can be characterized by themes and techniques drained from popular mass culture, such as
- Advertising and
- Comic books.
Like pop music, pop art also aimed to utilize images of popular culture in art. It emphasizes on the predictable or attractive elements of any given culture. Pop art at a time embattled a broad audience, and often it claimed to do so. However, much of pop art is considered very educational as it is very easy to comprehend.
American pop art has its own origins different from the British. Here the movement was a response to Abstract Expressionism. Here it marked a return to sharp paintwork and representational art. Its use of images from mass culture and regular exchange was a relatively new progress.
