Pop Art

If your idea of art involves supermarket products, comic book panels, and photos of celebrities, then BrainPOP has just the movie for you! In it, Tim and Moby discuss pop art, an artistic movement that celebrated popular culture as it existed after World War II. You’ll discover how pop artists elevated ordinary images from magazines and supermarkets to the status of high art. You’ll learn how the movement used irony and humor to make its points, how it embraced commercialism and mass-production techniques, and how it thumbed its nose at the artistic establishment. Finally, you’ll meet some of pop art’s most well-known practitioners, including Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and of course, Andy Warhol. You’ll never look at a can of tomato soup the same way again!
