The Pop Art movement
The art-pop movement aimed to reintroduce the image identity by drawing a popular image to mass media. This allowed the pop art movement to shift to the direction of modernism. Artists took images from the daily life. That came far away from the so-called “high art” themes of mythology, morality, and classic history. As the Pop Artists were celebrating this achievement, they were also seeking a manner to elevate the popular culture to the level of fine art. They incorporated the images of commercial things and let the pop art become one of the most recognizing styles of the so modern art.
The main idea that pop art wants to transmit is by creating sculptures or most common paintings, to approach the mass culture objects. Letting this syndrome happen, it creates a point of no return on the dismantling of the fine line that creates the “high” art and “low” art culture. Basic idea is to show the concept of no hierarchy of culture. The art can be created from any source or idea. This main idea has been one of the most influential characteristics of the Pop art.
There are some critics about the creations of the pop art after the World War II and the media reactions. The focus of criticism is how the pop art endorses the capitalist market and goods related to it. The other side of the critics is straight to the pop artist elevation to the everyday art created. The sub-creation of the commodity of the goods represented in their art to the status of the object itself, creating the emphasis of the art as a commodity at the base level.
