“OMG”( Jesus ) – packing tape on a lightbox
Nowadays, there are so many directions and branches in modern art as never before. Very often they are so similar, and boundaries between intentionally blurred to such an extent that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish this or that art patterns of today’s artists clearly and classify. But when it comes to Pop Art, the error of this nature is hardly possible because Pop Art has always been and remains over decades into one of the most popular art movements and many of us so familiar that such distortions would simply be improper.
Is it worth here the photo portrait of beauty Marlyn Monroe by Andy Warhol and the most famous Collage by Richard Hamilton to mention that have become modern art, but also for the far distance from the art scene actors become symbols of the era? Based on the Pop Art Culture was the American mass consumer culture, although this direction itself arose in Europe, the UK, and not in America.
As before, serve in the pop art popular brands, advertising, and cinema as well as other well-known symbols of modern society into objects of art. For reviews and expert’s Pop Art inexhaustible ability to argue whether art is still alive; it is an opportunity for artists to realize himself and his audience to be as accessible as possible, which is due to the use of elemental and most known symbols, stereotypes, ideas become possible.

If the art, this function cannot be satisfied, it is hardly more than Art Studio, because of such art society and so today’s vibrant audience does not matter as it may be highly aesthetic. Pop Art responds to the slightest changes and recent trends in the life of the Company immediately and very sharp. Subjects are generally taken from comics, attention is devoured by the primitive representations and speculation with human emotions such as love, heroism, etc..
In consideration of today’s lifestyle Pop Art is like earlier popular and widespread, but no less interesting. The assumed number of artists who prefer Pop Art provokes competition between them and it means that there are new representation methods and motives searched and found that the individual artist and his works are stand out in the whole mess.
The establishment of light for this purpose seems to be a fairly original solution. The bright and saturated colors, applied as a background of the image – this is so satisfied with a classic train in Pop Art, but the colorful background that varies continuously. It is certainly the news. The light organ, experiments with colors on the screen are known for all long been and probably already made it also to become symbols of contemporary society. Therefore, the application of this method in the performing arts is nothing more than a quick-witted solution for pop and street artworks.
