Pop Art  Mid 1950’s – early 1970’s
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, but artists who drew on popular imagery were part of an international phenomenon in various cities from the mid-1950s onwards. Following the popularity of the Abstract Expressionists, Pop’s reintroduction of identifiable imagery (drawn from mass media and popular culture) was a major shift for the direction of modernism. The subject matter became far from traditional “high art” themes of morality, mythology, and classic history; rather, Pop artists celebrated commonplace objects and people of everyday life, in this way seeking to elevate popular culture to the level of fine art. Perhaps owing to the incorporation of commercial images, Pop art has become one of the most recognizable styles of modern art.

Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962)
Artist: Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol , his work has use the same product but with the different name on the product to present his emotion on it . He had use his drawing skills and printing skills to create his design .I think what he had done is presenting things but his life style seems like what he see in supermarket what he feel in his life to help his design .

Whaam!, 1963, Tate Modern
Artist :Roy Lichtenstein
Roy Lichtenstein his work can make me feel pop . It made me feel have so many fantasy space . His design is come from “All American Men of War” published by DC comics in 1962 . It really attracted by the way highly emotional subject matter could be depicted using detached techniques.I really like this kind of design . Giving us a imagine space to think about what we can feel in his design and I think his design was really different between with the conservatives old guard .It really fit the nowadays teenage to reflect on .

This two artist , actually both of them was very pop style is really fit teenage taste .Their design was not boring , it was very interesting but I prefer more to Roy Lichtenstein. I like his design to giving the people to have their own though to the design .I think pop art was really related to modern .
