Pop Art is characterised by a deliberate rejection of the styles of the past; emphasizing instead innovation and experimentation in forms, materials and techniques in order to create artworks that better reflected modern society. Our collection places emphasis on colour and form that is sure to bring a fresh perspective into any room
Experimental in nature, Pop art is known as a forerunner of post-modernism and as a style that both rejected the status quo of art styles of its time (1950’s-60’s) and defined a reimagining of relevant ‘modern’ art in the hearts and minds of young artists of the western world. Described as easily forgotten, mass-produced, young, sexy, glamourous and popular, the emergence of pop art prints held sway mostly in America and Britain, as the primary origins of the culture that inspired it. It is defined by moving away from abstract-based concepts towards more impersonal symbolism, representational of the real world and distinct forms caked with parody and irony. Lauded both commercially and academically, pop art has become one of the most recognised art movements of the 20th century.
