Pop Art

Pop Art emerged during the 1950s in Britain and exploded into enormous success during the 1960s in America. Pop Art employed a new, bold aesthetic inspired by popular culture such as advertising, comic books, and was a celebration of quotidian life. The movement, as a reflection of the times, centred around multiples and mass reproduction, using new artistic techniques such as silk screen printing.

Pop Art was born out of a rebellion against the dominant movements and approaches to art that came before. Young artists could not find anything that reflected their realities in the museums or in their classrooms and so turned to their immediate surroundings for inspiration. Using popular and often commercial imagery as their inspiration was an overt challenge to the elitist culture of art.

Shapero Modern holds an impressive and wide-ranging collection of Pop prints and works on paper.

Roy Lichtenstein is a star of Shapero Modern’s collection of American Pop Art. His bold graphic style of thick black lines in tandem with explosions of vibrant colour is distinctly ‘Pop’ in how they resemble comic strip panels from popular culture. Shapero Modern holds a number of silkscreens from Lichtenstein’s Imperfect Series, alongside illustrations from La Nouvelle Chute de l’Amerique.
