POP ART EXHIBITION

by Joshua Land

WHAT IS POP ART

Pop art is the abbreviation for popular art, a style that emerged as a direct response to abstract expressionism. The style emerged in the UK and US during the 1950s and was inspired by everyday objects and bright colours, so that everyone could appreciate and enjoy it. It used advertising imagery, photographs and ordinary elements of consumerism (like soup cans, cereal boxes etc) to make it more connected to people. Famous pop artists include Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Patrick Caulfield, Blek le rat, Banksy, Pixnit etc.
