4 Pop art is now most associated with the work of New York artists of the early 1960s, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Claes Oldenburg artists who drew on popular imagery to create their artworks.Pop art was a part of aninternational phenomenon whichsaw major developments in various citiesfrom the mid 1950s onwards.
5 Key Ideas and Information 'Pop' was a term first applied to popular culture rather than to art which borrowed from that culture, but it would be one of the goals of the Pop art movement to blur the boundaries between 'high' art and 'low' popular culture. The notion that there is no hierarchy of culture, and that art may borrow from any source and mix it with others, regardless of their context and history, has been one of the most important characteristics of Postmodernism as a cultural moment.
6 Although Pop art encompasses a wide variety of work with very different attitudes and postures, much of it is emotionally cold towards its subject matter.In contrast to the 'hot' expressivism of the gestural abstraction that preceded it, Pop art is generally 'coolly' ambivalent. Whether this suggests an acceptance of the popular world, or a shocked withdrawal, has been the subject of much debate.
7 It could be argued that the Abstract Expressionists searched for trauma in the soul, while Pop artists searched for traces of the same trauma in the mediated world of advertising, cartoons and popular imagery at large.But it is perhaps truer to say that Pop artists were the first to recognize that we cannot have unmediated access to everything - be it the soul, the natural world, or the built environment. Everything is connected.
