POP ART: Do you hear what I’m writing?

At times, we seem our feel­ings are so intense that they would not belong any­where oth­er than a com­ic book dress­er. We jump into the late 1950s and 1960s, to the Unit­ed King­dom and the Unit­ed States. At that time, the POP ART move­ment was boom­ing and artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Licht­en­stein, Richard Hamil­ton and oth­ers. As resis­tance to the art prac­tices that exist­ed after the Sec­ond World War, they used ideas from the world of comics, pop­u­lar cul­ture, con­sumerism, such as food pack­ag­ing, for their artis­tic expres­sion, mak­ing unusu­al col­lages.

We will learn the mean­ing of the word ono­matopoeia, how to remem­ber its pro­nun­ci­a­tion and paint a plaque on the board with a unique excla­ma­tion or inter­jec­tion.
