I really enjoy pop art. It looks real fun and fun to do. My favorite pop arts are the ones that have multiple versions of the same picture . I also super like the comic ones. Some pop art is very disturbing like the ones by mel ramos that have naked women coming out of food and sitting ontop of food or random things like hippos and stuff, disturbing.
