Comics - Everything you Need to Know!
There are a wide range of comic styles out there for Pop Art including
that of Roy Lichtenstein, who arguably created the
style. Some would
say however that he borrowed very strongly from the comic book styles
of the 1950's and 1960's to create his iconic art. So which
came first? Good question...
Pop Art was born out of the imitation of consumer culture and as such
the different elements are almost inseperable from each other.
All we see around us today could become the subject of pop
art tomorrow. Strong advertising imagery fed into the comic
pop art movement as below. However, Roy Lichtenstein was clearly
inspired by the do or die comics of the war and post war eras...
There were very few images as evocative as Lichtenstein's 'Whaam!'
(1962) above. This is a truly outsatnding pop art comic book picture,
which links well with the comic book theme. The real thing is an
astounding size, 4 meters long and currently hangs in the Tate in
London. An outstanding site I can tell you, having stood before it in
complete wonder. It was actually based on an image from 'All American
Men of War' published by DC comics in 1962.
