Pops of Color- Sierra Bradshaw

This gallery includes pop art and art work that utilizes  colors and unique types of artwork. It also includes art work that may not be specifically pop, but that can be derived from it using its similar colors, shapes, and patterns of creating a piece.  It includes artist from Andy Warhol to Roy Lichtenstein. Pop art is an artistic movement that came in the mid 1950's- 1960's; it incorporates advertisements, comic books, current popular topics, and a lot of irony. Some pop artist use their art to take a stand on current political topics. 

Untitled, Hong3, 2014, From the collection of: Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art
I personally feel like one of the biggest (and current) types of pop art in todays standpoint is graffiti. While sometimes its used as a vandalism, it is normally used as a political art form. This piece is very repetative in colors, like most pop art pieces are, and while it does not make a political stand, it is eye catching which is something pop art does in just about every piece it creates.
Artist's Studio, Patrick Caulfield, 1964, From the collection of: Arts Council Collection
Patrick Caulfield was normally connected with pop art, this piece was something that he made that he uses to depict his own art space that he works in. This piece really uses a lot of different styles, such as the details in the vase to the simplicity of the buildings in the background.
A True Story About Joseph Beuys No. 3 (This Is a Fascist German Military Pilot Joseph Beuys), Kęstutis Grigaliūnas, 1998, From the collection of: Modern Art Center / Modernaus Meno Centras
This piece follows the comic stylings of Lictenstein, but has a more defined drawing. You can clearly make out the spiders in the ground and the mans face, also its not a flat portrait for how they used the dots and lines to give his clothes and the sky a texture. It once again, is repetitive in color though, since it stays with just basic oranges and yellow, and blues
Portrait of Hugh Gaitskell as a Famous Monster of Filmland, Richard Hamilton, 1964, From the collection of: Arts Council Collection
This portrait depicts Labour worker, Hugh Gaitskell, as a monster. This is one of the more obvious pieces in pop art as it is a political piece. I feel like all of the parts of the "monster" that come together show unity really well, it allows you to clearly see the subject even though he is made up of multiple different parts.
Portrait of Dolores Olmedo, David Hockney, From the collection of: Museo Dolores Olmedo
This photo uses multiple depths to show different part of Dolores and brings them together in a collage to make the whole picture. In pop art, collages are used a lot to depict a bigger picture and I feel like this is just a perfect example of that. Also the colors in her shirt tend to be the main focus and its really the biggest attention grabber
Yolk 1417, Jim Dine, 2001/2001, From the collection of: Borusan Contemporary
Free South Africa, Keith Haring, 1985, From the collection of: Inter-American Development Bank
Keith Haring is someone else who was a big part of the pop art movement, he created very simple, almost stick art like pieces, to create political works. This one depicts a slave basically trampling over his master. Haring didn't have to use a lot of color to show exactly what was going on in this piece. Because the basic colors he used shows exactly whats going on.
Life life, Choi, Jeonghwa, 2012, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
While this doesn't really depict any type of statement or any obvious concept, it shows a lot of color and I thought it fit in perfect with "pop of color" The balloons are all the same shape, the pattern stays consistent and the bright colors show a lot of similarities to pop art in the sense that your main focus goes towards the colors.
Self Portrait, Andy Warhol, 1967, From the collection of: Detroit Institute of Arts
This is just as it says in the title, it is a self portrait of Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol was know for using a lot of saturation in his pictures. He always use contrasting colors and still created the exact same picture with very few colors. He also did this style of painting with Marylin Monroe.
Red Barn, Roy Lichtenstein, 1969, From the collection of: Huntington Museum of Art
Liechtenstein was one of the more popular pop artists, he used a lot of color and was known for his comic strips. In this picture there is a red barn that us drawn in a comic book style. The rhythm with shapes is very repetitive because its extremely simplistic but to a point where you can clearly see the picture
