Make Your Own Pop Art

It’s actually easier than you might think to make your own Pop Art. In fact of all the well known art movements of the last 150 years or so, Pop Art is arguably one of several that’s easy to replicate yourself. Pop Art was popular during the 1950s and 60s and tried to capture the popular culture of the times – advertising, TV, comics, films and mass production. Often the artists didn’t even paint but used collage, silk screen printing or other methods to create their works. Some artists took a popular image and turned it into a work of art, often by reproducing it several times, such as Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell Soup cans. For a contemporary Pop Art work, simply take a photo of a mobile phone, copy it a few times and paste the copies onto paper. Instant Pop Art!
