Pop Art 2 波普藝術

op Art :In the years following World War II, the United States enjoyed an unprecedented period of economic and political growth. Many middle class Americans moved to the suburbs, spurred by the availability of inexpensive, mass-produced homes. Elvis Presley led the emergence of rock and roll, Marilyn Monroe was a reigning film star, and television replaced radio as the dominant media outlet.
Yet by the late 1950s and early 1960s, a “cultural revolution” was underway, led by activists, thinkers, and artists who sought to rethink and even overturn what was, in their eyes, a stifling social order ruled by conformity. The Vietnam War incited mass protests, the Civil Rights Movement sought equality for African Americans, and the women’s liberation movement gained momentum.
It was in this climate of turbulence, experimentation, and consumerism that a new generation of artists emerged in Britain and America in the mid- to late-1950s. Pop artists began to look for inspiration in the world around them, representing—and, at times, making art directly from—everyday items, consumer goods, and mass media. They did this in a straightforward manner, using bold swaths of primary colors, often straight from the can or tube of paint. They adopted commercial methods like silkscreening, or produced multiples of works, downplaying the artist’s hand and subverting the idea of originality—in marked contrast with the highly expressive, large-scaled abstract works of the Abstract Expressionists, whose work had dominated postwar American art. Pop artists favored realism, everyday (and even mundane) imagery, and heavy doses of irony and wit.
Yet Pop artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein were very aware of the past. They sought to connect fine art traditions with pop culture elements from television, advertisements, films, and cartoons. At the same time, their work challenged traditional boundaries between media, combining painted gestures with photography and printmaking; combining handmade and readymade or mass-produced elements; and combining objects, images, and sometimes text to make new meanings.

普普藝術(Pop Art,又譯為「波普藝術」或「通俗藝術」),是一個探討通俗文化與藝術之間關連的藝術運動。普普藝術試圖推翻抽象表現藝術並轉向符號,商標等具象的大眾文化主題。普普藝術這個字目前已知的是由1956年英國藝術評論家羅倫斯·艾偉(Laurence Alloway)所提出。
“普普”的命名是來自流行藝術(popular art)這個源,是由藝術評論家勞倫斯·阿羅威(Lawrence Alloway)看到那些平庸無奇的商業主題繪畫和雕塑、裝置時,就流行藝術的這個詞而給予命名的。
普普」的命名是來自流行藝術(popular art)這個源,是由藝術評論家勞倫斯·阿羅威(Lawrence Alloway)看到那些平庸無奇的商業主題繪畫和雕塑、裝置時,就流行藝術的這個詞而給予命名的。
「普普」(pop)也是「棒棒糖」(lollypop,lolly是舌頭,pop是塗抹)的一個簡化口語詞,可追溯至十八世紀。表示可口可樂之類的「汽水」(soda pop)一詞,大致也是那個時期產生的(這裏的pop可能是指瓶子開啟的聲音)。無論如何,我們都可以看到輕鬆愉快的享樂和渴求慾念的轉化(例如棒棒糖的性暗示)。[1]
一般認為,普普藝術是從1950年代中後期開始,首先在英國由一群自稱「獨立團體」(Independent Group)的藝術家、批評家和建築師引發,他們對於新興的都市大眾文化十分感興趣,以各種大眾消費品進行創作。1956年,獨立團體舉行了畫展「此即明日」(This is Tomorrow),其中展出了理查德·漢密爾頓的一副拼貼畫《究竟是什麼使今日家庭如此不同、如此吸引人呢?》(Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?)。畫里有藥品雜誌上剪下來的肌肉發達的半裸男人,手裏拿着像網球拍般巨大的棒棒糖;有性感的半裸女郎,其乳頭上還貼着閃閃發光的小金屬片;室內牆上掛着當時的通俗漫畫《青春浪漫》(Young Romance),並加了鏡框;桌上放着一塊包裝好的「羅傑基斯特」牌火腿;還有電視機、錄音機、吸塵器、枱燈等現代家庭必需品,燈罩上印着「福特」標誌;透過窗戶可以看到外邊街道上的巨大電影廣告的局部……這一切都可以通過那個半裸男人手中棒棒糖上印着的三個大寫字母得到解釋:POP。該詞來自於英文的「popular」,在漢語中一般音譯為「普普」。1957年,漢密爾頓為「普普」下了定義,即:「流行的(面向大眾而設計的),轉瞬即逝的(短期方案),可隨意消耗的(易忘的),廉價的,批量生產的,年輕人的(以青年為目標),詼諧風趣的,性感的,惡搞的,魅惑人的,以及大商業」。


Elizabeth Peyton – Jarvis

Elizabeth Peyton - Jarvis

Elizabeth Peyton (born 1965) is an American painter who rose to popularity in the mid-1990s. She is a contemporary artist best known for stylized and idealized portraits of her close friends and boyfriends, pop celebrities, and European monarchy. Her work is characterized by elongated, slender figures with androgynous features. Her work at times resembles fashion illustration. The artist, interviewed in the catalogue for the exhibition The Painter of Modern Life at the Hayward Gallery in London in 2007, has indeed acknowledged the importance of photography as an inspiration source for her art. Her work is most often executed in oil paint, applied with washy glazes that are sometimes allowed or encouraged to drip. Several other works in coloured pencil have also found notoriety, and recent work has included etchings. The idealization and stylization of known celebrities has led some critics to characterize her work as being in the tradition of Andy Warhol. The artist has cited influence by David Hockney.

Hommage an Andy Warhol

1981 aß Andy Warhol vor laufender Kamera einen Burger King Whopper in etwa drei Minuten. Leider gelang es mir nicht, dieses hohe Tempo zu halten. Darunter leidet die Dramaturgie allerdings weniger als unter der Tatsache, dass ich nicht Andy Warhol bin.


Street art, arte urbano. Mural en palacio.

En el año 2011, Antonio Fernández-Coca realizó el mural de la casa palacio de las Ramblas de Palma. También intervino sobre su verja de entrada con una pieza de arte urbano, street art.

En este vídeo, realizado ese mismo año, se explica el proceso, el porqué y para qué de esta actuación.

The best WTF finds from ABHK came from Indonesia. These two acrylic paintings in the “Band of Sober” series are the works of Uji Handoko, an artist born in 1983 (yes, seriously!) also known as “Hahan”, which feature traditional asian religious figures situated next to some truly demented happy characters.

Surreal pop wtf insanity is exactly the kind of art I love. For more of the artist work, visit thisishahan.wordpress.com/ or Twitter: twitter.com/UjiHahan or Instagram: instagram.com/hellohahan/ @hellohahan

Definitely someone to watch out for—if they know how to do social media marketing for themselves they are generally unstoppable for viral growth… 🙂
