Two of the most famous artists during this time were Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Despite their highly different personal styles of depiction, these two men helped to define what most people consider pop art today.
Andy Warhol focused on capturing the essence of popular symbols and celebrities who drove the economy. His works depicting Campbell soup cans and Marilyn Monroe, in particular, are as highly prized today as they were when they were first developed.
Roy Lichtenstein's work, on the other hand, was more concerned with the graphic elements of comic book art. His art focused on comic book representations of different subjects, which were usually people painted in flat, symbolic designs. His works, such as 'Drowning Girl', created a fascinating contrast to representational and abstract art of the time.
Modern artists have also embraced the pop art revolution. However, unlike the artists who first implemented this art category, they're less focused on portraying the irony of modern culture and more focused on the attitudes that made pop art so unique. Artists like Dean Russo, who uses psychedelic color patterns and loved subjects such as dogs in his work, uses the same ideas of altering people's perceptions about a well-known subject as the original pop artists did.
In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s the pop art movement took the United States by storm. Pop art uses images and aspects of popular culture such as logos, comics, and other cultural influences all while combining it with fine art. The movement was a foundation for famous artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg.
