Artist Twitter Backgrounds: Pop Art

on Mar 07 in Viuu Art News by Viuu

The Pop Art movement emerge in the mid 50s in Britain and in the late 50s in the US.

This art movement was intended to provide art for the masses in a period of post-war affluence, very visual and instantly understandable art as opposed to the elitist, established art world.

Pop art was easily recognisable by everyone, when traditional paintings needed a certain understanding and knowledge of art to be appreciated.

The idea behind the artwork was more important than the work itself. Therefore the focus wasn’t on the quality of the finished artwork and the artistic skills needed to produce the artwork. Pop art is celebrating “the idea behind the artwork” rather than the artwork itself.

The leading pop art artists were: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Roy Hamilton, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Claes Oldenburg.

Currently there’s an exhibition on Pop Art at the MOMA called “On to Pop”.

The Exhibition will remain open until 25th April 2011. There are also lecture and gallery talks on the “On to Pop” exhibition.

We decided to create some Pop Art Twitter backgrounds for our artist Twitter backgrounds category.

Enjoy the original works of Warhol, Lichtenstein and Johns through our free Twitter backgrounds!
