Pop Art is an Art movement that emerged in the mid 1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States.

Pop Art featured things like mass culture, advertising and comics. Many people believe that it was a reaction (or expansion on) Abstract Expressionism. Where Pop Art bares similarities to Dadaism, it was Minimalism that accompanied this moment in paving the way for Post Modernism.

Pop Art has a very particular style, it uses bold/bright colours and fonts, often inhabits product labels and logos, and uses everyday objects.

Leading Artists consisted of people like Andy Warhol (American), Patrick Caulfield (British) and Roy Lichtenstein (American). Some of the work of these artists is displayed below:
