In the 1950s, a young man from Pittsburgh named Andy Warhol made his living as a commercial illustrator in New York City. But his ambitions went far beyond that; He was soon painting Coca-Cola bottles and filling a gallery with paintings of Campbell's Soup cans. He certainly wasn't the first to do a pop work, but Warhol soon became a brand name himself, synonymous with the new art form that embodied everything that was youthful, subversive, bright and fresh.

From proto-supermodel Twiggy, who rocked fake eyelashes and a Union Jack dress at Swinging London, to Eero Aarnio's trippy, enveloping ballroom chair, pop seeped so deeply into fashion, furniture, and product design that it's hard to separating the look and vibe of the 1960s and 70s from the art of the era a. Undoubtedly to Warhol's dizzying delight, pop not only drew from pop culture, it became pop culture.

After that 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. With Instagram and TikTok on the ubiquitous pop-colored iPhones, social media is to today's followers what advertising and Hollywood were to pop artists sixty years ago.

Following our hit Travel Series, Assouline introduces the Style Series, which spotlights some of the most iconic art movements and design styles, revealing their historical impact and their enduring impact on our culture today. This colorful volume brings together dynamic imagery from different eras and media to capture the energy and exuberance of sixty years Expressing pop art style.
