Pop art with a bit of surrealism
Surrealism and pop art, both are movements that incorporate elements of shock in order to produce a deeper impact. I am not particularly fond of Pop-art; somehow, It always looked tacky for me and Andy Warhol just looked like an average slightly insane guy.My view on Pop-art was based on the little information I had about it and my taste.
It's so interesting that most movements started as revolutionary forces to change society. Surrealism tried to change society from the 1920's on producing great artists,philosophers and authors being my favourites Miró and Dalí(Painters).
Pop-art started in the 1950's with an edgy juxtaposition of common objects out of advertising,mass culture and comic books. Minimalism and Pop-art are considered movements that precede postmodern art. I can think of just one pop-art's artist work that I like, Roy Lichtenstein.
I did not try to copy any style in particular with my "Eve with surrealist tree" but It came out as mix of two styles. What do you think about it?
