Artistic movement born in the early 50s in the United Kingdom, then in the late 50s across the Atlantic in the United States, pop art is defined by the artists themselves as the meaning given to the artwork more than the work itself.

Born with the development of the consumer society, pop art highlights the use of consumer goods produced in series to put them in situation in artworks and denounce a state of affairs. In artistic terms, pop art is a reaction to the movement of abstract expressionism.

In addition, this pop art movement has disrupted the artistic world through the questioning of the principle of uniqueness of the artwork. Having as a principle to reproduce their artworks in several copies, completely similar, or with different colors, or on different supports, the pop art artists have defeated the classical idea attributing to an artwork a value because of its uniqueness.

Strongly linked to popular mass culture, pop art artists get their inspiration from the world of comics (Mickey, Donald ...), Marvel superheroes, Batman and Superman ..., cinema with Marylin Monroe and all stars of the 50s and 60s. Characterized by the use of multiple vibrant colors, pop art works speak immediately to all because its images or those they represent are anchored in the collective unconscious, permanently bombarded with advertising images for years. The viewer immediately identifies with the representation of the pop art work.

Considered as a movement in reaction to mass consumption, popular products featured in advertisements are also favorite topics for artists. Everyone has Andy Warhol's creations in mind with Campbell Soup.

The techniques used by pop art artists are multiple: cutting, collage, painting ... the artworks of these artists are often reproduced in large quantities with processes such as screen printing, always to make the link with the consumer society.

Some street art artists also appropriated the pop art phenomenon and first developed it on the street, on walls with frescoes, before creating on canvas. Their creations often mix pop art culture and graffiti culture to get their messages across. Super heroes and tags on the same artwork, Coca-Cola bottle stencil with a street art character... the possibilities are many.
