The beginning of the Contemporary art period is debatable, however, many historians believe that the starting point of the genre began in the latter part of the 1960’s during the end of Modern Art.
Contemporary Art is thought to have followed soon after Pop Art. Pioneering the Pop Art movement were artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who used images of mass culture within their artwork. They were the pioneers of the Pop Art style. Their use of bold colours, repetition and comic-book style were an important factor to the Pop Art style, as seen in Andy Warhol’s famous ‘Marilyn Monroe Sunday B Morning’ series and Roy Lichtenstein’s ‘Hopeless’ from 1963.
Pop Art Posters are available at Letitia Morris Gallery, as well as Abstract Pop Art Posters from both Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. We also have a range of Contemporary posters printed after 1980. Some of these include posters from the Croatian artist, Boris Bucan and the French artist, Michel Quarez.
We also have a range of contemporary fashion and illustration posters, including the famous ‘Chanel’ by Andy Warhol, this poster comes in four different colourways.
