Pop art is an answer to the art world following the growth of entertainment. Television, games, consumerism… Visuals from advertisement are often used. With Pop art screen printing makes a comeback on the art scene. Nothing is unique and objects and images are mass-produced: several copies, with varying colours and sizes… The colours used are bright and offset. Pop art uses techniques originating in industrial processes.

Pop art is one of the most important artistic trends of the 20th century.

All kinds of art forms performed in the street or in public places are included. Used techniques encompass quick graffiti on walls, ads, stencils, mosaics, stickers, posters, and even yarn bombing and installations. This type of art, although short-lived, is typically seen by large audiences.
