Transcript of Pop Art
Sarah Feustle Pop Art Influences of the Period Techniques Pop art commented on contemporary society and culture, particularly consumerism, by using popular images and icons and incorporating and re-defining them in the art world. Many pop artists used silkscreen printing, oil on canvas and acrylic on canvas.
Bright colors are also common in pop art, and the works are all 2-dimensional and objective (they resemble a real object). Image from:
http://www.dobleclic.com/en/arte-pop/ The History of Pop Art Pop art was a style of art from 1958 to 1975, which originated in England in the 1950's and traveled to the US in the '60s. Pop art explores the everyday imagery that is so much a part of contemporary consumer cultures. It features bold colors, advertisements, celebrity photographs, comic strips, and consumer product packaging. Artist of the Time Period Andy Warhol Wayne Thiebaud Wayne Thiebaud began as a sign painter and cartoonist. He is most famous for his thickly painted canvases of junk food and desserts (see below) and later work consist of primarily women. Our Opinion We enjoy pop art because we like the bright colors and subject matter. The artist created an original form of art out of common materials. Pop art changes the way that you look at products and inspires imagination. Andy Warhol was one of the most famous pop artist of all time. He is perhaps most famous for his drawings of celebrities (see below), food, and painted canvases of junk food and of course Campbell Soup Cans.
Andy Warhol was first a commercial artist and began making paintings of familiar objects such as soup camps and Brillo pads. He used mechanical techniques to mass produce images and his interest in pop art blossomed. Resources Artist by Movement: Pop Art. Artcyclopedia. Web -15 March 2013
