Pop art Paintings
Experience the Vibrancy of Pop Art
At Cohle Gallery, we are thrilled to present our collection of captivating Pop Art paintings. As an art movement that exploded onto the scene in the 1950s and 60s, Pop Art has continued to fascinate art lovers with its bold, graphic aesthetic and focus on popular culture. Our curated selection spotlights some of the most exciting names in Pop Art, both emerging and established.
The Origins of Pop Art
The Pop Art movement has its origins in 1950s Britain, where artists like Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi began incorporating elements of popular culture, consumerism, and mass media into their works.
In the United States, the movement started gaining traction in the late 1950s through artists like Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, who brought everyday objects into their art. However, Pop Art exploded onto the art scene most prominently in the early 1960s New York, led by the likes of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg.
Pop Art marked a major shift in the art world by rejecting abstract expressionism's
seriousness and instead embracing popular culture in a bold, colorful way. Works started depicting consumer products, celebrities, comic strips, and more. The movement brought art out of the elite circles of high culture and into the mainstream. Pop Art aimed to blur the boundaries between high and low culture and merge commercialism and artistic integrity through an ironic, tongue-in-cheek approach.
