Intro to Pop Art
Transcript of Intro to Pop Art
Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States.
The concept of Pop Art refers more to the attitudes that led to it, rather than the type of art itself. Early pop art in Britain was fueled by ideas of American popular culture viewed from afar, while the American artists were inspired by the experience of living within that culture.
Pop art uses mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and everyday objects. Art is often seen as "elitist" (only for the upper-class), and the idea of pop art is that it is common or kitschy (mass-produced art, generally gaudy, & calculated to have popular appeal). It can also be meant as ironic (like sarcasm).
Pop art merges popular culture with fine art, while injecting humor, irony, and recognizable imagery into the mix. Commonplace, mass-produced objects and images become "fine art."
