Peter Blake’s abstract and figurative Pop Art is available for sale on Rise Art.

For more than 10 years Kareem Rizk has been cutting and pasting his way towards a unique and contemporary style mixed with Pop Art references that have earned him international recognition. Kareem uses found materials such as old books and magazines, along with vintage brochures, postcards, catalogues and memorabilia to create multi-layered works that are nostalgic at their core and reference the Pop Art movement extensively. Kareem’s Pop Art mixed-media collages are available to buy on Rise Art.

French artist Alban’s works have the appearance of degraded materials, like old panels of aircraft and design objects. In fact, they are carefully constructed wooden structures that use Pop Art influences to invite the viewer to discover a world that exists only in our imagination. Alban's original Pop Art sculptures are instantly familiar, yet impossible to place.

History of Pop Art

The Pop Art movement began in the UK in the 1950s. Characterised by commonplace objects such as soup cans, comic strips and other mundane objects like fruit and shoes, the Pop Art genre draws inspiration from any source. The genre originally began as a revolt against traditional approaches to creating and engaging with art, breaking down the hierarchy of culture along with the view of what art should be. Using this imagery as a reference, Pop Artists often create works that are colourful, witty, provocative and glitzy.

Immortalised initially by the work of Richard Hamilton, who described the genre in 1957 to friends in letters as popular, transient, expandable, low cost and young. While first reactions to the Pop Art movement were muted, with some modernist critics rejecting the use of low-culture subject matter, the movement firmly took hold when the New York City artists of the 1960s including Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns popularised and legitimised Pop Art as a serious practice, changing how the genre was viewed.

Techniques of Pop Art

People often ask where the Pop in Pop Art comes from. The Pop references popular culture and aims to confront the traditional elitist art world. The movement emphasises the banal, kitchy elements of any culture, mainly through the use of irony or sarcasm. In Pop Art, materials are often presented in a confusing or disjointed way. Materials are usually removed from their known context and are either isolated or combined with unrelated materials, making the material stand out in a new perspective. The effect of combining various colours, shapes and backgrounds in a kitsch output is also what gives the movement its genre.
