Pop Art

Depict Playful Designs that Pop

Snap, crackle, POP!

Unapologetically celebrating common objects and everyday people, the pop art movement began in the 1950s as a challenge to traditional fine art. Pop artists incorporated images from mass media and popular culture like comic book references or mass-produced, household items. Think, graphic elements from advertising, funky collage-esque layouts, and omitting central elements of the piece as a statement.

Anything but elite, pop art stands out for its kitschy, often ironic sense of playfulness. Campbell’s soup, anyone? That’s right, it’s Andy Warhol’s era. Pump up your artistic process for this pop-art-inspired challenge. Nod to the movement’s greats like Roy Lichtenstein, Eduardo Paolozzi, Larry Rivers, or Jasper Johns. Take your own ironic stand on mass-produced culture or parody advertising and fine art. It’s your chance to make humorous, standout designs with typography or graphics that really pop!
