Pop Art

IMG_4503[1]IMG_4501[1]IMG_4498[1]IMG_4496[1]Sixth class have been studying the Pop Art movement. Pop Art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and the late 1950s in the USA. 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. One of its aims is to use images of popular culture in art. Pop art often takes imagery that is currently in use in advertising. Product labelling and logos figure prominently in the imagery chosen by pop artists, as seen in the labels of ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans’, by Andy Warhol.  We looked at the work of some famous exponents of Pop Art and then created our own Pop Art pieces.
