Popular, transient, expendable, low cost, mass produced, young, witty, sexy, gimmicky, glamorous, big business. The English painter and collage maker Richard Hamilton once used these adjectives to define pop art, a movement which upended the art world in the 1950s and 1960s by presenting everyday objects and mass-produced imagery as pieces of high culture. Both a satirisation of consumerism and a love letter to it, the movement began on the fringes of high society, but over time has come full circle. Now, the works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring are adored by the mainstream, and serve as inspiration for heritage brands and the industry leading designers. Those that are true to the original spirit carry on its wit and irreverence, often translated through (or perhaps instigating) our current high-low obsession with logos and popular iconography. Here, we single out three bold and graphic pieces from the most forward-thinking of designers.
