POP Art

Cruella De Vil1985

The pop art movement was a blurring of the line between fine art and commercial art, starting in the 1950-60s. It captured the felling of everyday life and spoke to the people about everything from celebrities to oppression to soup. Pop artists used hard line compositions and bold colours like those found in billboards and magazines. This was very innovative for that time; many new materials and technologies were used.

"Once you 'got' Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again."
