In the 1950s, Andy Warhol, a young man from Pittsburgh, earned a comfortable income as a commercial illustrator in New York City. But his ambitions reached much further; soon he was painting Coca-Cola bottles and filling a gallery with paintings of Campbell's Soup cans. He was certainly not the first to create a Pop work, but Warhol soon became a brand name himself, synonymous with the new art form that embodied all that was youthful, subversive, bright and fresh.

From the proto-supermodel Twiggy with false eyelashes and a Union Jack dress in swinging London to Eero Aarnio's trippy, enveloping Ball chair, Pop seeped so deeply into fashion, furniture and product design that it's hard to separate the look and vibe of the 1960s and 1970s from the art of the era. No doubt to Warhol's giddy delight, Pop not only drew from pop culture, it became pop culture.

After this first wave, the movement never really went away. Each succeeding generation of artists and designers has revived Pop's vitality while giving it a new direction. Indeed, with Instagram and TikTok on ubiquitous Pop-colored iPhones, social media is to today's followers what advertising and Hollywood were to Pop artists sixty years ago.
