Before the movement, people never thought that art was something that anyone could do. The movement, therefore, brought about a revolution in the West and the western culture went pop crazy within a few years. This work gave birth to realism in pop art. Hamilton developed his art from commercial art sources. This was a time when the influences of advertising and mass communication was setting an important stage in America there were numerous television stations and newspapers that were being published daily. In addition, movies and plays theatres were open at any hour of the day or night, and this served to encourage artists during the 1950s. Besides the visual arts, the Pop Art movement, from 1960s incorporated pop music, mainly rock and roll music. The initiation of this era was a result of the attempt of the US artists to borrow from blues to create a musical style that was impressive to the new movement and its related generation.
In the 60s and 70s, the Pop Art development was faced by opposition from the community who found the rebellion of the teenagers as negative to the social structures. However, the gains by the music entrepreneurs and the artists’ promoters made the movement even more strong to the extent that it became relatively acceptable. However, it was still associated with the young and revolt generation that was out to gain independence from the family. This is due to the complete originality and freedom of innovation that has characterized the culture.
