Character of the Art Movement<br />Pop Art started in London in the 1950s uses common everyday objects to portray element of culture and try to advertise it or televise it. Mainly led by LawerenceAlloway; defending Pop Art as a legitimate art form, but was carried in the Americas in the early 60s by Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg. Andy Warhol was the big Pop Artist in the genre, he used a photo-realistic technique that helped him with his advertising and his commentaries on fame and the media. Pop Art itself made commentary on contemporary society and culture. “It was also widely interpreted as either a reversal or reaction to Abstract Expressionism or an expansion upon it.” Pop Art was so basic that it was simple to identify, and understand it.<br />
