Art based on modern popular culture and the mass medals, especially as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art value. Pop art was started in 1950s but didn't become popular until the 1960s.
The purpose of pop art was because of a rebellion against non-objective-art like "abstract expressionism." Pop art began as a means of subversion of fine and classical art. By including modern images, it acknowledges how pervasive images from pop culture can be. The artists who drew on popular imagery were part of an international phenomenon in various cities.
Four artists that was part of this movement was Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein,James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg.
The thing that make pop art stand out is the ability to make people happy and feel the glory through the painting. There are so many expressions amongst the picture that you have to stare at it in order to get a reasoning of the art.
The reason it was given the name "Pop Art" is because of the ability it does. It bring out a pop in art. It throws color and emotions at one time.
I chose this movement because it come with a flare to it, also it make things pop no matter what is in the painting. I liked the colorful sense to it.
The thing that was commonly painted amongst this movement was ladies. It was paintings of them doing numerous things throughout life.
