Pop art is an art movement emerging in the mid 1950’s that challenged the norm and used images and objects from daily life to emphasize the ordinary elements of any culture. Some artists duplicated beer bottles, soup cans, comic strips, road signs, and similar objects in paintings, collages, and sculptures. Others physically integrated the objects themselves into their paintings or sculptures. Materials such as plastic, urethane foam, and acrylic paint.
Pop-art was influenced by themes from advertising (product labels and logos), comic books, television, and everyday objects. Artists sought to depict everyday life and the perception of reality in an impersonal way, so that the viewer is able to better focus on the message that the artist is conveying through a particular object.
