What IS Pop Art?

Pop Art is a style of modern art that uses the images of mass-production and ordinary type objects such as household products, then are distorted or transformed using various artistic techniques. Pop Art was developed mostly in the 1950's and originated in the U.S.A.

Andy Warhol- The KIng of Pop Art

  • The famous king of Pop Art was without a doubt Andy Warhol, who surprisingly started out by making films. His very first movie was called ‘Sleep’ and it was 6 hour long "masterpiece" of his friend sleeping. Nine people attended premiere. Seven of them stayed and watched the movie. Two of them left within the first hour. He created at least 60 movies including Kiss, Blowjob, Eat, Shoulder, Couch, Face, Kitchen, Horse, Suicide, Drink, Closet, Sunset, and Bitch.
  • Andy almost died when he was shot three times in the chest by Valerie Solanis. Valerie was an ardent feminist and one of many who thought Warhol was abusive and controlling.
  • In high school, the art club excluded Warhol because he was better than the other members.
  • Warhol opened "The Factory" in 1962. "The Factory" was an art studio where Warhol employed workers to produce his work as prints and posters, mostly using the silkscreen technique. His art became a mass production, just like the many images he used within his work.

So Andy Warhol was an interesting person for sure! Your typical quirky artist.
