The Beginning of Erotic Pop Art
Erotic pop art actually has a richer history than what most people would have you believe. Erotic pop art differs from pop art in that there is a blatant and continuous representation of explicit adult depictions in various mediums.
Pop art and erotic pop art simultaneously materialized from the ideas of the masses in the early 60’s in the United States when a lot counter-culture movements starting arising, namely how liberal and open people can be about sex.
Using the very commercial and mass-media imagery that represented what so many people despised, pop art flourished in a world of new ideas and erotic pop art soon followed with many well known artists taking part in the movement.
The Feminist Movement: A Crippling Blow To Erotic Pop Art
Always more of an “underground movement,” erotic pop art took some hits from the second wave feminist movement of the same decade, slowing it’s growth to the point that it’s more obscure now than ever before.
Few artists today have talents worthy enough to say that they keep the movement alive. Most greats that really flourished in the 80’s and 90’s have since passed on and many amateurs have taken up the art form to make a name for themselves but few have succeeded.
