Transcript of Pop Art
Advertising was on the rise due to the popularization of television (and radio). Commercials became even more important and the target audience expanded to include everyone.
Capitalism promotes competition and each company wanted to sell their product in a unique way.
Although advertising was not considered an art form, it has become more and more celebrated.
Pop art combines ordinary objects and commercial images, turning them into an art form.
When Warhol entered the Pop Art scene, he drew inspiration from the things in his life that were the most important to him
Warhol grew up in a poor family, so his mother would often serve Campbell's Soup for meals.
Warhol was very close with his mother and loved her very much. These paintings are a tribute to her.
As a child, Warhol collected autographed celebrity photographs.
He used many of these photographs in his art as his inspiration.
Lichtenstein grew up in a wealthy family in New York City, a contrast from Andy Warhol. He drew his inspiration from comic strips. At the time, comic strips were not considered to be classic art. Lichtenstein's style was revolutionary because he chose to parody the comic strip style.

During the mid 1900's art and commercialism began to overlap
-The Pop Art movement was controversial because it challenged the definition of fine art. Classic art was not based on popular culture and pop art is.
-The dictionary definition: "A form of art that depicts objects or scenes from everyday life and employs techniques of commercial art and popular illustration."
-Pop art can be a critique on traditional art or society using irony and exaggeration.
