  1. 4:04 Thank goodness we in the US did away with that monarchy thing in 1776. I mean, we have a new kind of neo-feudal corporate fascist overlord (like Bill Gates for example) to replace it, but the English are still knighting various assholes. Come on England, escape the shackles of the 18th century and get with the times.

  2. Andy Warhol outsourced most of his silkscreening to a shop in Cranford, New Jersey.
    They were even autographed by the Silk Screener.
    Allot of Warhols ideas came from the kids that hung out at the Factory in Manhattan..

  3. ……no. Pop art is a movement not a set way of making pieces. If you're referring to the pieces created during the movement they were usually painted, screen printed or collage. Pop art appeared around 1946 – 1956 and household computers didn't hit the market till the 70's and I doubt would have been capable of producing this kind of work.
    Hope that's what you wanted to know if not and I've misunderstand your question then please ignore my ramblings

  4. Nothing against Peter Max, a great poster and product artist, but Yellow Submarine was not designed by Peter Max. Yellow submarine was designed by the German genius poster artist Heinz Edelmann who died in 2009.

  5. @auhc93 I wasn't exactly saying that pop art influenced consumerism, but it did 🙂 Pop art put marketable icons on the art stage, in a different context. Now when I see a product I think about how it relates to the needs and desires of current society. It can actually be interesting to see the different ads that bombard us daily in a cultural sense. Like all the diet pill ads and all the food ads! Ironic, no? My views on pop art have changed since that post eight months ago 🙂
