Pop art is a movement in the modern art, it began in Great Britain in the middle 50s of the last century. A few years later pop art movement moved into the culture of the United States. The works of pop art usually have characters that are popular in comic books and advertising and anyone else who is very popular in mass culture. Pop art design extensively uses irony. Even the most down to earth and prosaic subject can be painted or drawn in the way that is truly a work of art.
Sometimes the images that are common in every day advertising become the most intriguing pieces of painting.

In Great Britain the pieces of paintings imaged what used to be popular in the United States. In the United States irony, parody and secular reality are shown in pieces of painting in pop art. Pablo Picasso was one of the founders of the Cubism movement, but there is also a widespread opinion that Pablo Picasso paved partially cobbled the way for future pop artists.
