An introduction to Pop Art
Introducing Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein - Famous Pop Artist
Andy Warhol was trained as a commercial artist, and is best known for founding (or claiming to found) the Pop Art Movement in American art. He developed the technique of projecting photographic images to a silk screen, a process that enabled him to produce repetitive patterns within the same piece relatively quickly. Typical works are of famous people, everyday objects (soup cans, dollar bills) and macabre scenes of car wrecks and electric chairs. He is well known for the portrait on the right he made of Marilyn Monroe.
Whereas merican artist Roy Lichtenstein . In the 1960s, became a leading figure of the new art movement, alongside Andy Warhol. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein’s bright, graphic images parodied popular culture.
