Who can guess what Pop Art means?

an art movement that began in the U.S. in the 1950s and reached its peak of activity in the 1960s, chose as its subject matter the anonymous, everyday, standardized, and banal iconography in American life, as comic strips, billboards, commercial products, and celebrity images, and dealt with them typically in such forms as outsize commercially smooth paintings, mechanically reproduced silkscreens, large-scale facsimiles, and soft sculptures.

Have fun changing the colors of this piece of art..click here. Andy Warhol found that he could silk screen ink onto photos of people. He made repeated faces of Monroe, Elvis, and Jackie Onassis.

Using everyday items like canned soup or coca cola cans, Andy made repetative mass media images.
