Pop Art Media was named after the art movement of the 1960's that took its inspiration from the imagery of consumer society and pop culture. Comic strips, advertising and mass produced objects all impacted the subject matter of this art movement. Artistic techniques such as photomontage, collage and assemblage were a significant part of Pop Art. These techniques are now standards for image production with graphics software.
Similarly, the Internet has provided a medium that merges technology, design and popular culture. Richard Hamilton, the original pop artist of the 60's, characterized Pop Art as "popular, transient, expendable, mass produced, young, witty, sexy, gimmicky, glamorous and Big Business", a description that could be applied to the Internet.
