3  Pop Art was a visual art movement that emerged in the 1950s in Britain and the United States (Moffat, 2007).  It was one of the biggest art movements of the twentieth century and is characterized by themes and techniques drawn from popular mass culture, such as television, movies, advertising and comic books (Moffat, 2007).  Andy Warhol is considered the “Father of Pop Art”

4 After a career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his avant-garde Pop Art paintings and screen printings. Warhol used images from tabloids and movie posters to talk about America’s celebrity culture. He used hard-edged shapes of solid color to simplify a photograph. He would mass produce these images for popular culture (Moffat, 2007). To check out Warhol’s museum click on his photo

8 Pop artists also liked to satirize objects, sometimes enlarging those objects to gigantic proportions. Oldenburg was famous for creating large scale everyday objects (Moffat,2007). Food was a common theme, but so were household objects such as chairs and toilets being made of squishy plastic instead of the materials you would normally expect (Moffat, 2007).
