BOBDOG Art Class -- Pop Art
Pop Art An art style (also known as neorealism and neo-dada) derived primarily from commercial art forms, characterized by enlarged reproduction of details of popular culture, such as comic strips, fast food, and trademarked packaging. Pop art originated in the United Kingdom in the early 50s of the 20th century, and in the mid-60s, Pop Art replaced Abstract Expressionism as the mainstream avant-garde. The main aspect of pop art is a form of expression by New Age artists that unites commercial art and modern art. Much of the inspiration for Babu Bean's designs also comes from pop art.
In the 1950s, the British art critic Lawrence used pop art to express works of art that were satirical, iconoclastic, and pop-pop culture, and had a great influence on the younger generation of British designers and artists.
In Pop Art, the most influential and representative painter was Andy Warhol. He was the initiator and leading advocate of the American Pop Art movement.
Marilyn Monroe is one of Warhol's most interesting themes. In the 1967 painting "Marilyn Monroe", the artist used the head of a Hollywood sexy movie star as the basic element of the picture, and repeated it in a row. The simple color, neat and monotonous Monroe heads reflect the helpless emptiness and confusion of people in the modern commercial society.
