Pop Art Portraits

 Virtual Open Studio




In today's Virtual Open Studio, we will be creating Pop Art Portraits inspired by a work of Pop Art in the UM Museum's collection by Andy Warhol!

Andy Warhol, born in Pittsburgh, PA, was one of the founders of the American Pop Art movement. "It all began with the first Campbell's soup can in 1962...With this simple image, the concepts of appropriation, and commodification were let loose for good." After painting, Warhol would create silk screen prints of the work, making him the first to utilize this method. 

Pop Art is an art movement that emerged in the 1950s and flourished in the 1960s in America and Britain, drawing inspiration from sources in popular and commercial culture. In Pop Art works, you will often see artists incorporate irony, bold colors, and flat imagery.
