What is Pop Art?
The Pop Art movement originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the mid- to late 1950’s. It challenged traditional fine art by using images and objects used by the masses, such as advertisements, comic books and very mundane, mass-produced, everyday objects… like a soup cans, celebrity photos, road signs, news paper, even brand names and other logo’s were used too!
Defining Traits of Pop Art…
A few defining characteristics of the Pop Art movement were its stencil like quality and bright, vibrant colors. The primary colors, red, blue and yellow were particularly popular to this era and are featured in this line up of pigment rich and creamy nail lacquers. Along with a bold violet, a sweet metallic pink and holographic golden glitter topper.
Pop Art Today
Pop Art often involved mixed media and collages. Artist would layer different paper, colors, images and other materials into a single work of art. Today, street artist like Banksy have a clear influence from the legacy of Pop Art; using stencils, layers of bold colors and mocking certain aspects of society, through pop culture and imagery.
