What is Pop Art?

The Hook Definitions: What is Pop Art?

Pop Art grounds itself in the world of popular culture, drawing reference from a range of media from comics to films to adverts. The Pop Art movement began in the 1950s by young artists who wanted to make art relevant to their lives; Pop was a rebellion against academic art. 

 Although popularised in the 1960s, Pop Art today is kept current through reflection on today's culture and media.
