Who are some famous pop art artists?


Pop art is a movement that originated in the 1950s in Britain and the United States. It uses imagery used in popular culture for mass consumption, e.g. in news, advertising and entertainment, and seeks to elevate it to the level of fine art. The imagery is often removed from its original context, but in turn is used to emphasize the banal and mundane aspects of culture.

Notable artists of the Pop Art movement include:

  • Andy Warhol.
  • Richard Hamilton
  • Roy Lichtenstein
  • Eduardo Paolozzi
  • Pauline Boty
  • Tom Wesselmann
  • David Hockney
  • Rosalyn Drexler.

Famous pieces include:

  • Hamilton's 'Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?'
  • Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup Cans'
  • Paolozzi's 'I Was a Rich Man's Plaything'
  • Lichtenstein's 'Drowning Girl'.
