I headed to the Barbican Art Gallery for the first time last week. I visited in order to check out the exhibition on Pop Art Design, which sounded interesting.

Pop Art flourished mainly in the mid-20th century, and grew up as a reaction to the austerity of the wartime era and the dawn of the media age. Artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and others created iconic works inspired by advertising slogans and incorporating bright and bold colours and designs. I don’t know if Pop Art is really ‘me’, but I found the exhibition interesting nevertheless.
