Pop Art (see: Wikipedia) was created in the 1950s almost simultaneously in the USA and in Great Britain. It emerged as a counter-draft to the abstract expressionism prevailing in Europe. The movement was at its height in the 1960s.
Pop Art combines everyday life and art. Very often trivial motifs from media and advertising are thematized. The motifs are torn out of their original context and isolated and their meaning is changed. The style captivates through a two-dimensional, striking and illustrative way of painting in combination with an extreme colorfulness.
