Pop stood for the word popular and was first used to describe art issued from the popular imagery. Pop Art emerged with the post-War boom in the mid 50’s as well as Pop Music and Pop Culture. Pop Art was promoting fun, young and accessible visual art in total opposition to the former artistic establishment. Roy Lichtenstein originated an emblematic footprint in American Pop Art movement based on comic strips and immediately embraced by galleries and collectors. He affirmed his own and unique hand-made Pop style art during more than 35 years, and he liked to pretend that his art has nothing to do with him.
