History of pop art:
After the World War 2, people used to spend a lot of money which is why the mass-produced items became abundant. Moreover, the television replaced radio as the media outlet. These changes are the case behind the pop movement as people started to put more attention on the store-bought products and the celebrities that were painted. However, the term “pop” was given by a museum supervisor who was a British named Lawrence Alloway.
He used the term “pop” to represent the new culture of the art that had a modern feel to it. The popularity of this modern art continued to spread all over the world in the 1960s.
