About this Curation

The Pop artists of the 1960s looked to images of consumer culture for their subject matter, and their techniques likewise reflected the processes and techniques of advertising and marketing. The artists featured here also reference images of popular culture and the aesthetic of the street with strong graphic lines and bold, punchy colours.
