The Pop Art movement draws inspiration from popular culture like Hollywood movies, advertising, pop music, and comics. Pop Art is known for its bold imagery, bright color palette, and repetitive approach inspired by mass production. It emerged in the 1950s, flourished in the 1960s, and was designed to be appreciated by the masses and appeal to the young. Today, Pop Art is considered as one of the first manifestations of Postmodernism. Andy Warhol was one of the artists who pioneered the Pop Art movement with his studies in multiples and advertising-inspired printmaking techniques. Roy Lichtenstein was another Pop Artist, creating colorful paintings that were inspired by comic book art and personalizing them by changing key elements. Keith Haring was an activist and street artist whose distinctive 1980s style blended Pop Art with graffiti. His serious subject matters like 'Ignorance = Fear (1989)' spoke to the AIDS epidemic and was rendered in bold tones with a graphic aesthetic.
