History and characteristics of pop art 

Very showy, the sculpture of this style is generally not difficult to spot. The sculptures are often very colourful, sometimes with fluorescent hues, and many elements are inserted: paintings, pictorial or sculptural representations of famous people, tags or writings, symbols, more or less abstract lines, diverted objects, etc.
Sculptures can be monumental or can enlarge the usual size of an object or a person. As a rule, they refer to popular symbols or landmarks that are understandable to everyone. 



English Pop Art and American Pop Art: 

Pop art emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in a different form in the late 1950s in the United States. 

 The history of pop art sculpture is completely related to the overall history of the pop art movement. Most of the early pop artists were both painters and sculptors, such as Andy Warhol who made paintings, silkscreens and sculptures, for example his famous Campbell's Soup Cans from 1962. 

What characterises this movement is the role of the consumer society, i.e. the mass society. This is the principle that the American artists will highlight. Indeed, they were inspired by advertisements, comic strips, television... Subsequently, the movement spread to other fields such as fashion, architecture, drawing, etc.



American pop art: 

Its great American representatives are, among others: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and his work Barcelona Head (1992), Keith Haring and his Boxers (1987), Robert Rauschenberg and Niki de Saint-Phalle. In France, the sculptors César and Arman are linked to the pop art movement. 

Cinema also became a real phenomenon and inspired artists such as Andy Warhol and his numerous variations on Marilyn Monroe.

Techniques 


The main technique used today by sculptors is resin. This synthetic product is perfectly suited to the pop movement as it is a product of the industrialisation of the 20th century. Nevertheless, artists use various types of materials: metal, steel, stone, plastic, glass, etc.
Resin is favoured today because it offers several advantages: its weight is relatively light compared to other materials, it is easy to transport, it is very resistant and its adaptability allows it to create an infinite number of shapes and textures. 

Artists who create Pop Art sculptures draw their inspiration from both popular culture (comics, television series, films, etc.) and everyday objects (washing powder, cereal boxes, wheelbarrows, shovels, ice cream cones, etc.). 

Street art has also been integrated into pop art, for example thanks to Keith Haring. This artist, of American origin, actually began his career in the streets and subways of New York.
 

Contemporary sculptors 

Thus, artists have not stopped producing sculptures. Nowadays, the style is evolving and does not run out of steam. Many pop art works are presented to us in galleries, exhibitions and museums, or in our cities. From Niki de Saint-Phalle's women, through Claes Oldenburg and his upside down ice cream, or Jeff Koons and his balloon dogs, to Yayoi Kusama and her big colourful flowers, many pop art sculptures are present in our society, Richard Hamilton, James Rosenquist, Jasper Johns.
Everyone has a particular pop-art sculpture in mind, because these works are very popular and are much appreciated by the general public.
