Art critic Lawrence Alloway created the Pop Art movement in England in the early 1950s. This new movement was inspired and based on the mass culture of the time (television, advertising, movie stars, etc.). This new style quickly rose to fame and became popular in the United States from 1959-1960, where artists paid particular attention to everyday objects by depicting them in familiar surroundings thereby increasing marketability, making reference to Hopper and S. Davis.
Pop Art reached its peak during the 1960s and was headed by : Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, etc. These artists represent seemingly neutral images and objects of everyday life as icons such as Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. In this piece he monumentalized an icon of post-industrial society and a widely consumed product by repeating the image. Warhol created the silkscreen printing technique that allowed him to multiply images of popular culture.
