Pop art-What exactly is it?
Pop art was a massive art movement that emerged in the 1950’s. This style of art is characterized by popular culture, mass media, and imagery of consumerism.
Why Pop art?
The purpose of pop art was to rebel against art like abstract expressionism, where the artwork doesn’t have a subject. Pop artists use ordinary objects and very recognizable elements in the media, and make people look at these elements in a whole new way.
