Transcript of Pop Art

If we don't have a sense of humor, we lack a sense of perspective.
Andy Warhol
Jim Dine
Wayne Thiebaud
The most common subjects that Dine uses are:

The heart
Venus de Milo, an ancient Greek statue
Pinocchio, bath robes, and tools.

Inspiration / Influences:

The tools within his artwork are from childhood memories with his grandfather in his tool shop. The Pinocchio images came about when Dine’s manager took the job as producer at Disney. He asked Dine to make artwork for his office. Dine selected a Pinnochio statue he had on his desk and made a painting of it.

Thiebuad's technique of using
geometric forms
with well defined
cast shadows
, make his work look more three demensional. He also uses many
within the colors.

Understanding Pop Art
& Coosje van Bruggen
Claes Oldenburg
Took objects from the real world and placed them out of context. They were a married couple. Coosje collaborated exclusively with her husband. Much of their work is public sculptures, in large scale.
Pop Art was an art movement that started in the mid 1950's and 1960's, which reflected everyday life and common objects.

Pop artists artwork is constructed of iconic images from popular culture.

Consumer goods
Comic strips and cartoon characters
Fine Art
Commercial art
It blurred the line between
fine art
commercial art.

Consumer Goods
Comic Strips and Cartoon Characters
Roy Lichtenstein
Litchenstein favored old-fashioned comic strips.
A lot of his artwork was from humor. He sometimes would use word bubbles to portray what the people are feeling in his artwork. His work imitated the
Ben Day Dot
mechanical printing of commercial art. The process overlapped two (or more) colored dots to create a third color. Back in the day, comic books used only primary color dots to inexpensively create other colors, such as flesh tone.

CBS Sunday Morning, Interview
It was hard for some people to understand Pop Art. Why were artists painting cheap everyday objects?

Pop art was appealing to some, but others felt it made fun of common people and their lives. In the past, art historically represented cultures most valuable ideals and fine art.
Because he was creating pictures of mass-produced items, Warhol thought it would be fitting to mass produce the artwork. He did this by creating
screen prints
rather than painting each picture separately. This allowed him to make many copies of each painting, but each copy was an original Warhol painting.

Andy Warhol was criticized for turning art into a business. Many people didn’t like the idea that he was just making copies of the same picture to sell and make money.
Examples of Dine's Greek Statues
1) View the Pop Art, Prezi presentation.
2) Carefully select two images/objects. One from the past and another from the present. You will need to complete the Pop Art worksheet to help you with this process.
3) Create a unique Pop artwork of your own, using the two selected images of your choice.
4) Write an artistic statement to be displayed with your completed artwork. Include art vocab, how your work will be displayed, and choices made.

Be certain to explore and use a variety of pop art characteristics. Some ideas that we discussed were......
