HOW THE BANAL BECAME ART…

During the time that this new art became popular, America was transforming. Culture was evolving and so this new art expressed the feelings of the era. This art projected “an air of intoxication, it was extroverted” the art was free. It somehow “spelled out the youthful buoyancy of America’s global climb.”
This art took simple everyday subjects and turned them into glamour and contemporary sculptures. It gave citizens the sense of stardom that everyone craves. POP ART materialized banal items, turning them into desired celebrities by the common American.
