Art Lesson: The New Pop Art
This is the new pop and I say pop in the most disgusting way possible. Along time ago any Warhol (who I don't like) lead the pop art revolution. Back then pop art meant using mass production techniques and famous logic to create pieces of art. The idea was to bring in to light the intensity at which we were being sold to through art. In short it was making fun of pop. Was. was was. The ironic thing that happened was the other artist began copying this style and techniques as well as corporations in order to sell more things.
now the new pop art is this cartoon surrealist (abstract images and ideas place in the painting which usually have meaning to only the artist) stuff that is every where (also that grunge threshold stuff). Its being copied and collected by everyone as they talk about how great it is when in fact it might as well be Campbell soup labels because they're so mass produced.
