Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the Western art and media during the late-1950s.The movement derived heavily from popular and mass culture including comics, movies, TV and cultural objects presenting a challenge to the traditional of fine art. Pop artists depicted and portrayed commonplace objects , identifiable images and people of everyday life, seeking to elevate popular culture to the level of fine art. With commercial imagery becoming an important part of Pop art culture, the art form has become one of the most recognizable styles of modern art.
In the words of Pop Artist Andy Warhol -
"Once you 'got' Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again"
