Aspire Art, Cataloguer & Researcher, Mtha Poni looks at the elements of Pop Art in the Contemporary Art Timed-Online Auction collection.
Pop Art has long been a favorite style for art collectors and enthusiasts alike. The movement emerged in the 1950s and 1960s in the United States and United Kingdom. It focused on popular culture and consumerism and was characterized by the use of bright colours, bold outlines, and commercial imagery such as advertising, magazines and comic books, and everyday objects. Pop Art’s bold colours and graphic elements make it perfect for adding a pop of color and energy to any space.
