Emerging in the United Kingdom and the United States during the mid- to late-1950’s, pop art is an art movement that presented a challenge to traditional art by including imagery both from and inspired by popular and commercial culture.

Thriving in the 1960’s predominantly in America and the UK, pop art was also contributed to by other countries and cultures during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Pop art evolved as a defiant alternative type of art with the perspective that it should not be limited to traditional views on what art should be. It reflected the surroundings and influences of young artists at the time. Subjects were often taken from popular and easily recognisable advertising, music, comic books, Hollywood movies and other sources of every-day life inspiration.

The pop art revolution saw artists presenting works in unusual and contemporary ways and frequently using basic and iconic subject matter.
