Pop art sculptures

Carré d'artistes presents a wide selection of pop art sculptures. Pop art style sculptures are very popular nowadays. The style has evolved since its beginnings in the 1960s, but it reinterprets and further develops the themes and codes created by the precursors of the movement.

History and Characteristics of Pop-Art

Characteristics of Pop-Art Sculpture

Very showy, the pop art style sculpture is generally not difficult to spot. Sculptures are often very colourful, sometimes with fluorescent tints and many elements are inserted: paintings, pictorial or sculptural representations of famous characters, tags or writings, symbols, more or less abstract lines, diverted objects, etc. Sculptures can be monumental or can grow to the usual size of an object or person. Usually, they refer to symbols or popular landmarks which are understandable to all.

History

The history of pop art sculpture is completely linked to the global history of pop art movement. Most of the early pop-art artists were both painters and sculptors, likeAndy Warhol who produced paintings, serigraphs and sculptures, for example his famous work Campbell's Soup Cans, from 1962. The artists of this time evoke, in their works, the context of capitalist society, its new technologies, mass industrialization, new media, etc. It is a movement that brings with it many artists and sculptors. Its major 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.

Contemporary Pop-Art Sculpture

Techniques

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

Contemporary Sculptors

Thus, artists have not stopped producing pop-art sculptures. Nowadays, the style is still evolving and is not running out of steam. Many pop art works are put on display for us in galleries, exhibitions and museums, or in our cities. Women from Niki de Saint-Phalle, passing by Claes Oldenburg and her upside down ice cream, or by Jeff Koons and his balloon dogs, to Yayoi Kusama and her large and colourful flowers, many pop art sculptures are present in our society. Everyone has a particular pop-art sculpture in mind, because these works are very popular with the general public.

At Carré d'artistes, discover pop-art sculptures by contemporary artists such as Floh, Sgarra, and even more.
