Pop Art Painting

Pop Art comes from the term “popular art" and refers to the art movement that first appeared in the UK during the 1950s, before spreading across the world. Pop Art has not only influenced the visual arts (collage, sculpture...) but has also had an impact on music and fashion

Among the many technological revolutions that have touched the history of painting, one of the most significant is certainly acrylic painting, a paint made from a combination of pigments, resin and turpentine. In comparison with traditional oil paint, acrylic has numerous advantages: it dries incredibly quickly, doesn't need varnish and is highly durable. Several Pop Art artists preferred using this more modern paint.

The popularization of silk screening, a stencil printing technique, also contributed to Pop Art's success. Examples of American Pop Art are often printed in series (using silk screen printing or other techniques) and created using a range of innovative industrial processes. These innovations were initially largely discredited and even subject to scorn until two key figures of the Pop Art movement emerged and helped promote these techniques.

Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein were among the pioneers to openly express their preference for these new methods. By appropriating these techniques, which had once been exclusively used in an industrial context, the two major Pop Art figures revolutionized the art world. Contemporary painting had been popularized since and an artwork's value is no longer measured by its rarity or by the subject depicted.

American Pop Art turned its back on a long artistic tradition and paved the away for post-modern contemporary art, taking everyday objects from mass culture as its subjects (Campbell's soup, Coca-Cola). Subjects were intentionally chosen because they were banal, popular and ordinary.

To reinforce the movement's drastic break from the Fine Arts and its traditional subject matter, artists worked with a bright color palette, essentially using primary colors: red, yellow and blue. The use of vivid colors can be found in dozens, if not hundreds of kitsch Pop Art paintings.

The movement was critical of consumer society and often ironically used famous figures from popular culture to convey their criticism (Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Mickey Mouse, Audrey Hepburn). These illustrations, which are reminiscent of advertisements or comic strips, are characterized by their use of very simple lines and minimalist details.

The desire to desacralize art is also reminiscent of the ideas of Dada or Marcel Duchamp's avant-gardism. However, for American and British Pop Art, their main goal was to ensure that culture was made accessible to the largest number of people possible. The Pop style made its mark very quickly and simultaneously created a new style of painting. Pop Art's philosophy emphasizes the power of images, the industrialized consumer society's new fetish. Nonetheless, from the 1970s onwards, many of the movement's artists decided to abandon Pop Art for other protest art movements.

On Artsper you can explore a range of Pop Art paintings from both well-known contemporary Pop Art artists as well as emerging artists. Some of the greatest painters of Pop Art include: James Rosenquist, David Salle, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman, and David Hockney.
