Go Bold with Pop Art Inspired Rooms

Pop Art is an art movement that began in the 1950s and became very popular during the 1960s especially in America and Britain. Pop Art draws inspiration from popular and commercial culture. It changed the direction of art during its time as artists started using everyday objects and media as their inspiration such as newspapers, comic books, magazines, soup cans and other mundane objects to help product vibrant compositions. Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein were two of the artists that become very popular during this art movement and today you can still find replicas of their artworks. Pop Art is one of the most recognisable forms of art to date and is still being used for inspiration.

Pop Art is all about vibrant bright colours and recognisable imagery such as soup cans, road signs, photos of celebrities, newspapers and other popular items in the commercial world. Humour was also used by artists during Pop Art Movement as well as mixed media and collage.

Tips: Pop Art Style is all about bright colour and being bold! Dark painted walls work well as a back drop if you have bright coloured artwork and furniture to show off. Otherwise white walls work just as well if you prefer that cleaner & fresher look. But don't be afraid of colour! Black and White patterns are a good choice if you are wanting to add pattern to your space as they team back with Pop Art inspired bold colours nicely and without taking the emphasis away from key pieces. Pop Art is all about having fun and seeing the humerous side of life so don't hold back when it comes to decorating.
