What is Pop Art?
In the mid-1950s, the Pop Art movement was born in the UK; Over time, this new style has become one of the most popular art genres of all time. It is considered a rebellion against the pompous abstract Empressionism, by separating certain objects from their original context and combining them with other atypical objects to bring about a completely new understanding of the material.
