Going on with a bit of modern art: Pop Art

Pop art started in the decade of the 1960 in EE.UU, concretely in New York. Andy Warhol was one of the founders of this movement so it is though to be the greatest artist joined together with Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg. Following the popularity of the Abstract Expressionists, Pop’s reintroduction of identifiable imagery (drawn from mass media and popular culture) was a major shift for the direction of modernism.

The  themes are focused in morality, mytholgy, and classic history. According to  Roy Lichtenstein, “Everybody has called Pop Art ‘American’ painting, but it’s actually industrial painting. America was hit by industrialism and capitalism harder and sooner and its values seem more askew… I think the meaning of my work is that it’s industrial, it’s what all the world will soon become.” .

Pop artists work with common objetcs and people so in this way we can say that they commercialize with brand images. Undoubtedly, Pop Art has become one of the most recognizable styles of art of this Century.
