Pop Culture

Pop Culture Art is a form of art characterized by the imagery of consumerism, new media, and other forms of popular culture. Bidsquare vintage pop culture and antique Pop Culture auction items present collectors with popular items that represent iconic people and moments from art, entertainment, current events, and music. The Pop Culture Art movement emerged in the mid-1950s in America and Britain as an attempt to narrow the divide between commercial and fine arts. It was felt that the conventional art in museums or that taught at school fails to represent the real world that we all live in. 

Pop Culture Movement

The Pop Culture movement took inspiration from the popular and commercial culture of the postwar era’s commodity-driven values to create humorous, witty, and ironic works as a celebration and a critique of the traditional forms of art.  Pop Art artists used commonplace everyday objects (like advertising, billboards, movies, pulp magazines, comic strips, television, and shop windows) as subject matter to make their art. 

Popularity of Antique and Vintage Pop Culture Items

The Pop Art movement continues to impact and inspire people’s lives, setting the collecting trends in vintage pop culture and antique Pop Culture items and bringing in diversity in collections. The use of recognizable and relatable iconography and themes has made Pop Culture Art remain a popular style of art to the general public and collectors. Available for viewing and bidding of vintage and antique Pop Culture auction items on Bidsquare are iconic works by famous Pop Art artists who shaped the movement, such as Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichtenstein.
