Funky: George Ferris
The origins of the United State's pop art movement are based on the 'impersonal' and the 'mundane' of living in the American culture of the 1950s and 1960s. Pop art also had its hands in appropriation: most artists labeled it as a way to create the 'mass-production' feel of popular culture in America. My image was influenced most by Roy Lichtenstein, whose art was aesthetically based off of the halftone printing of comics. The Tate Modern, London, has many of Lichtenstein's work on display. You should check out his most known piece, 'Whaaam!'.
