Episode details

Pop Art is a colorful and exciting art movement. It made its appearance in the US and the UK in the 1950s. It is the most well-known development in the Arts of the 20th century. When Pop Art first entered the artistic scene, it was considered shocking and radical. It was the complete opposite of abstract expressionism that came immediately before it. Pop Art came to be due to popular culture, mass media, and consumerism. Pop artists believed that art taught in schools and exhibited in museums no longer represented the real world. This led them to shift to contemporary mass culture as their inspiration. At the height of its popularity, Pop Art was referred to as "anti-art" because it did not abide by the standards of contemporary art at the time. Since its appearance in the 1950s, Pop Art has continued to be a well-known artistic movement. Pop Art saw the end of modern art and the beginning of contemporary art.
