Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Pop Art

Pop Art (päp ärt)

This is part of my Fine Art Series or the History of Art through Bow Ties.

Pop Art was a movement started in the 1950's. They brought mundane cultural objects to the level of art. This particular piece is indicative of Roy Lictenstein's work where he would appropriate a panel from a comic book blow it up and re-crop it.

This is an image of Johnny Thunder and his Thunderbolt from DC comics. I re-drew it, cropped it differently and changed the word balloon. This was to mimic Lictenstein's style.
