Pop Art

Shirts and Ties by Brian Nash $2,200

You may have heard the term Pop Art in the news recently due to the death of artist James Rosenquist, a pioneer of the genre. What is Pop Art, you ask?

Pure Milk by Jeff Schaller $315

According to Wikipedia, Pop Art is a movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and the late 1950s in the United States. Among the early artists shaping the movement in the US were Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.

Milk Shake by ZF QUE $600

Pop Art presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising and news. Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects.

Jet-Puffed Marshmallows by John Kilduff $545

COLORFUL Collage Abstract Art by Michel Keck $675

One of its aims is to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony.

SHAZAM! by JD Deardourff $265
