Pop Art borrows images from popular culture and mass media. It emerged in the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s as a response to widespread consumerism. Pop Art uses irony to challenge and engage with popular culture, including its own place in popular culture.

Some artists associated with Pop Art:

  • Andy Warhol

  • Roy Lichtenstein

  • Tom Wesselmann

  • James Rosenquist

  • Keith Haring

  • Robert Indiana
