Art crime at its best

Pop Art Style

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the 1950s in Britain and the United States. It challenged tradition by asserting that an artist’s use of the mass-produced visual commodities of popular (pop) culture is contiguous with the perspective of fine art. Pop removes the material from its context and isolates the object, or combines it with other objects for contemplation. Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, product design, comic strips, movies, science fiction, technology and mundane cultural objects. It is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism. Pop art may emphasize the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture through the use of irony or dynamic and paradoxical imagery. It is also associated with the use of mechanical means of reproduction and rendering techniques.
