Transcript: Obstacle 3 Roy Lichtenstein Pop art was first recognized in the United Kingdom in the late 1950s, and became very popular when it was brought over to New York in the 1960s.

Andy Warhol End Characteristics Obstacle 1 Obstacle 2 by: Sarah Rodgers Andy Warhol is considered to be the leading figure in the Pop Art Movement. He often created simplistic works usually showing one person (typically a celebrity), or one object. Warhol was known for his painting of the Campbell's soup cans, his film 'Chelsea Girls', and for his portrait of Marilyn Monroe. He created all of his pop art sing Screen Printing. He was also known for the scene at 'The Factory', which was Andy Warhol's workshop where he created most of his work.

His paintings usually had a comic book quality. Lichtenstein created paintings, as well as, sculptures. Pop Art Movement History Start The words "Pop Art" come from the words "Popular Art", so often artists would create their art based off of the more popular or commercial ideas in the world. Ex. Comic Books, Celebrities, Food Products etc. Pop art could be created by print making, paint, photography and many others. The overall appearance of the art work could be manipulated by changing the texture, colour, and layering images.


Transcript: by Charlie White In 1940, Lichtenstein began taking painting classes, and later that year, he went to Ohio State University, where he studied drawing and design. He created sculptures as well as portraits and still life works influenced by artists such as Picasso and Georges Braque. Some more famous pieces of Pop art are Andy Warhol’s “Campbell’s Soup Cans”, “Shot Marilyns” and Roy Lichtenstein’s “Drowning girl”. But there are also some more unusual pieces of Pop Art such as Robert Rauschenberg’s “White Paintings” which are just canvases with white paint on them. Shot Marilyns Lichtenstein was often accused with copying his own pictures from other cartoons, however these statements were usually just casual remarks made by the public. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING Roy Lichtenstein was without doubt one of the most inspirational artists of the modern era, not just to other artists but to the public too, simply because of his unique style and his ability to create amazing storylines through his work. He was born and raised in Manhattan, New York and lived most of his life there. At one stage he lived in Cleveland but he returned to his hometown not long after. Lichtenstein was also one of the first artists to use the technique of Ben-Day dots. This is especially useful in prints because it could be created in an orderly way and it creates a sense of depth. This use of Ben-Day dots was one of the things that separated Lichtenstein from other Pop artists at the time. In the '60s POP ART PRESENTATION White Canvases There are many different themes used within pop art, but they are often very similar. In most of Andy Warhol’s pieces, the main subjects are everyday objects and people, usually celebrities of that time, and similarly in those of many Roy Lichtenstein pieces. Pop art is defined by “art based on modern popular culture and the mass media, especially as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art values” which in more simple terms is anything to do with modern objects, people or ideas. design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi HOWEVER... In 1943, Lichtenstein was called up to the army, and it wasn't until 1946 that he was finally discharged.
