What is Pop Art?

American Pop Art was a product of the social revolution of the 1960's. It associated itself with everyday images of the populate that connected people, instead of the esoteric and closed word of the more classical predecessors. It's strongly linked with the rise and globalization of pop music and youth culture, epitomized by Elvis and the Beatles. Pop art was brash and fun and represented innovation without constraint and showed the power of connection people in a more open way.
