Find Pop Art prints chosen by our curatorial experts. Pop Art prints for sale to suit all styles. Pop Art is an art movement that took off during the 1950s across the US and the UK. The Pop Art movement took inspiration from popular culture such as comic books, movies, mass advertising or other general cultural phenomena to create art. As a genre, Pop Art was controversial because it challenged contemporary artistic conventions considered particularly elitist at the time.…
Before Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism, a movement which also rejected traditional ‘high art’, art was largely restricted to exploring ideas of morality, mythology and art history. Pop Artists chose to raise popular culture to the same height as fine art, and thanks to using such commonplace imagery and popular commercial figures, Pop Art became well-recognised among the general public.
Abstract artists which paved the way for the rise of Pop Art include Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp and Kurt Schwitters. These artists all created pieces originally viewed as ‘anti-art’ for not abiding by prevailing standards or rules of art. The original Pop Artists, though, were Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenberg; the latter famously ridiculed traditional art for “sitting on its ass in a museum”. Among others, they played with a variety of mediums to create ‘soft-sculpture’ or ‘soft-prints’, often with expressive wit and comedy, to comment on the state of US and UK culture.
