3 A visual art movement that emerged in the 1950s and was popular in the 1960s in the United States. Characterized by themes and techniques drawn from popular mass culture, such as television, movies, advertising and comic books. Food was a common theme, but so were household objects. Pop artists liked to satirize or ridicule objects, sometimes enlarging those objects to gigantic proportions. These objects reflected mass culture and consumerism. The movement was marked by clear lines, sharp paintwork and clear representations of symbols, objects and people commonly found in popular culture.
