To celebrate Easter and spring, we created colorful pictures with pop-art inspired colors. Now that spring is officially here, we think it’s the perfect time to celebrate the season by honoring three of our favorite pop artists.
1. Roy Lichtenstein
Lichtenstein was one of the original creators of pop art. Inspired by cartoons and culture in the 1960’s, he created impactful pieces produced by tiny dots. You can see of his paintings right here in New York, at the MoMA and the Guggenheim.
2. Andy Warhol
Warhol is another artist known for his impact on the Pop Art Movement in the 1960’s. His style is known for its comic, decorative and whimsical imagery, including screen prints of icons like Marilyn Monroe, and cultural symbols like Soup Cans and Coca-Cola bottles. Warhol’s work can be viewed in New York at the MoMA and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
3. James Rosenquist
Rosenquist’s style shows unique influences of his first profession: a billboard painter. Now, he is best known for his large collage paintings of fragmented images inspired heavily by advertisements and mass media. His artwork often covers entire gallery walls, with the goal of overwhelming viewers with these cultural representations. Rosenquist’s work can be seen in New York at museums including the Acquavella Galleries and The Met.
