Our 4th ESO studentes are right now discovering Andy Warhol’s work which introduces them to such an important movement as “Pop Art”, and is helping them to understand and use the relation between colours.
Pop Art started as a way of criticism to the art work in that period, which was based on the artist’s manual skills, the originality of their ideas and the unrepeatability of their work. This controversial movement included the reproduction and repetition of objects as one of its principles, apart from their obsession for models taken from popular culture. As Andy Warhol did, our students have looked for images that belong to the “low culture” to reproduce them in a series (that is why, for the first and probable last time, they have been allowed to trace the drawing).
Otra cosa que caracteriza al “Pop Art” es su escaso realismo cromático. Los artistas de este movimiento, para alejarse aún más de la idea tradicional del arte jugaron con el color de manera aleatoria. En este ejercicio también nos hemos alejado de la realidad cromática pero, a diferencia de los pintores “Pop”, no lo hemos hecho aleatoriamente si no que hemos intentado jugar con las distintas gamas cromáticas, buscando siempre la combinación perfecta entre opuestos y complementarios.
