Probably the most influential figure in the pop art movement, Andy Warhol and his paintings are known worldwide, and now you can use your own photos for pop art canvases done in the Warhol style. Warhol pop art is famous for repeating images in varying fields of color, and your daughter, son, or even pet can be featured in canvas prints in this lighthearted style. Your images, either in black and white or color will be superimposed against a background of yellow, purple, blue, and red on archival canvas with the best quality Epsom inks.

The Pop Art Movement and our Culture.
Pop art was born when art and commercialism fused together in order to satisfy the viable interests of the observer. Although it got its start in the US and the United Kingdom, the Pop Art Movement dexterously influenced the mindset and mannerism of the world. The Pop Art movement was characterized by pictorial representations of familiar objects. Pop art was thriving with new metaphors and innovative ideas that made it more commercial and less abstract. Pop art was more of an economic and capitalist view of art, yet a very vibrant, germane and acceptable art form.
Breaking the norms of tradition, Pop art changed the observer, as it was completely unique and didn’t bear much resemblance to the abstract expressionism, which was also celebrated around that period. The mixture of advertisements, caricature, and a splash of color, created a finished product that was a fresh new form of art. It also included artistic renderings of celebrities and music icons such as The Beatles and Elvis Presley Pop Art. This was something that people enjoyed. It wasn’t completely lofty, and was light enough that the senses could easily digest it. It easily found its way in a period, which was dominated by stronger art forms. The world was thus ready to witness a change.
Pop Art became renowned in the 1950’s and 1960’s. This was post World War II, a period when Europe and other parts of the world were emerging from the past economic crisis. This period denoted progress economically and socially, and because of the colossal economic growth and development, the future had great prospects for Pop Art as well as its other counterparts. Because of this, Pop Art was mainly influenced by the American culture. People’s feelings, everyday events, and humdrum objects were depicted in these paintings.
American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s “In The Car”, is a perfect example of Pop Art. Some of Roy’s work is based upon comic strips and comic books. In the car has the same comic strip flavor at its core, but it still bears a lot of substance, as does his other painting “Kiss II”. This painting keenly describes amorous feelings and was a huge success. The painting sold for nearly six million dollars. This painting and many others like it were well established due to their ability to grab hold of the imagination through picturesque figures and imaginative interpretations.
Our culture embraced pop art, as it was pertinent and easy to produce. It had a mass appeal and could be easily understood by everyone, though few critics also panned it down. Regardless, it still has a venerated place in the hearts of many. Most renderings are low in cost, and provide a velvety and lustrous edition to their homes. Pop art does deliver the message but without the spark. It may not be ethereal like the abstract art, but it is more defined, alluring, and chic, giving itself the name it deserves, pop!
