Pop Art Puzzle:
The Pop Art movement started in 1950s London and New York City during a post-WWII climate of experimentation, consumerism, and growing affluence. Artists used everyday products like soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles as themes in their work, which turned these object into cultural icons. Pioneers of the movement - including Richard Hamilton, Is Eduardo Paolozzi, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol - drew inspiration from mass media and the new obsession with celebrities. Their works blurred the distinctions between high art and “low” (or pop) culture, and the appropriation of images from magazines, comic books, and consumer advertising prompted a larger discussion of the true meaning of art, artist, and originality.
