Pop Art for children
Andy Warhol was part of the Pop Art activity (check out the Pop Art film below!). He had been famous for checking out popular culture in the work, making use of images of brands like Coca Cola, Listerine and Campbell’s Soup (that was one of his favourite what to consume):
He liked to make use of bright tints and silk screening ways to mass-produce artworks based on promotion photographs of stars, similar to this popular picture of Marilyn Monroe:Silk-screening is a process which could produce a lot of artworks/prints that look the exact same. The design is separated out into individual tints, therefore the position of every color is marked out-by a stencil. By pressing ink through stencils one-by-one, the colours build up to form an image. Sometimes Warhol would switch colours around and provide a group of images with inverted or contrasting colours collectively:

He previously a really specific individual style. He previously a surprise of white/grey locks and ended up being usually seen wearing many black colored, fabric coats and specs or sunglasses. Very striking!
