Pop Art

“Pop art [is] art in which commonplace objects (such as comic strips, soup cans, road signs, and hamburgers) were used as subject matter and were often physically incorporated into the work.” (Encyclopædia Britannica)

Corita was inspired by an exhibition of Andy Warhol's Soup Cans to start creating art from the enviroment around her; combining the strong visual langauge of advertisements with the text of scripture and poetry and the ethos of social justice.
