Pop Art Leggings - The Wearable Art Your Legs Need
Also known as popular art, pop art is the art movement that emerged in the 1950’s and continued to grow in the 60’s and 70’s.
A sort of opposition to the cultural and traditional views on what art should be, this was more of a reflection of what artists saw around them every day.
They turned to inspiration that included Hollywood movies, advertising, product packaging, pop music, and comic books. The images were often defined by hard lines and vibrant colors.
Modernist critics were appropriately horrified by this new brand of art and the ‘low subject matter’ it sourced from. However, it was clear this artistic movement wasn’t going anywhere.
Since it’s implosion on the art scene, it has continued to grow with different countries and cultures making contributions to the movement. It affected other aspects of life including fashion and home décor.
Read on to find out more about the pop art style and pop art inspired fashion.
The Impact of Pop Art on Fashion
The Pop Art movement was very much a reflection of the times. While artists were giving resistance to the more traditional art that came before, it seemed as if the whole world was rebelling.
People were marching against the government in the wake of the Vietnam war.
At the same time, rock n’ roll was becoming a more popular style of music. The noisy guitars, blue jeans, and long hair were signs of the counterculture that was gaining momentum all over the world.
Given the current political and social climate, it was only a matter of time before pop art became a part of the world of fashion. And an artist named Andy Warhol was leading the pack.
As an artist, Andy Warhol has become almost synonymous with pop art. He started his career working as a fashion illustrator working for magazines like Glamour, Mademoiselle, and Vogue.
This gave him the perfect opportunity to bring pop art to the fashion industry and he began by printing his art designs on paper dresses which were becoming a novelty of the time.
One of the more popular designs was the Souper Dress which featured his famous Campbell soup can print.
It wasn’t long before other designers followed suit. Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, and Vivienne Westwood were just some that joined the pop art movement.
Today, pop art is still going strong. Designers like Takashi Murakami, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton continue to feature pop art-inspired fashion in their collection.
