Things You Didn't Know about Pop Art and Graphic Design

The Pop Art movement made its debut in the 1950’s. At the time, it appealed to the wealthy as well as changed the culture. The meanings and inspirations behind the movement were so profound and iconic that the art is studied, produced and featured even today. In fact, for many people Pop Art is just another form of art. However, that is not entirely true.

This article will look into some interesting things you didn’t know about Pop Art and Graphic design. Here are some of them:

To start off, you will be surprised to know that Pop Art and graphic design are among popular art movements that are most appreciated today. This movement started off as a rebellion by those who were against abstract expressionists as they considered them to be over intense and pretentious.

One of the things that many Pop Art and Graphic design enthusiasts do not know is that the movement traces its origin to Britain in the late 1950’s spreading to the United States in the late 1950,s. The main goal was challenging tradition and have the visual elements from pop culture used in mass media be viewed as fine art. Although it is little known, the emergence of Pop Art and graphic design coincided with the pop music phenomenon of the 1950’s and 60’s hence is greatly associated with fashionable and swinging image of London. A case in point is Peter Blake who made the cover designs for Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

American Pop is considered to be more emblematic, aggressive and anonymous unlike the English Pop Art that is more subjective and referential. In fact, English Pop had the main concept as metaphors. Even then, one of the pioneers of this art held a belief that everyone is a machine hence he made his work look as though it was a creation of a machine.

The independent Group in London is considered to be a precursor of the Pop art movement. Eduardo Paolozzi a sculptor and an artist who also co-founded the group introduces a number of collages known as Bunk during the group’s first meeting. The collages comprised of objects like comic book characters, advertising and magazine covers among other graphic works that are mass produced that were representative of American culture. The first art work that included the word pop was a collage called I was a Rich Man’s Plaything by Paolozzi.

Although red, yellow and blue are the predominant colors used by Pop Art artists because they were vivid. They did not reflect the inner sensation of the artists. In fact, these colors only refer to the movement. It is from this that American artist Andy Warhol was inspired to experiment with techniques like screen printing that later became popular with screen printing. It is also interesting to note that pop art relies on getting material from its context and associating it with other subjects for contemplation. Also, many people do not know that pop art has had great influence on contemporary graphic design so much so that graphic design is considered to be a reinvention of Pop Art. As such, both Pop Art and graphic design feature prominently in a range of print design products like t-shirts, birthday cards, calendars, posters and canvas among others.

Finally, Pop Art remains to be a great inspiration to artists even today. Top graphic designers generate digital illustrations, cool prints and posters. In summary, Pop Art and Graphic design continue to dominate the artistic world because of the versatility of the work produced.
