Today we are going to be looking at Claes Oldenburg’s print Flying Pizza. Printmaking is where you can make several prints, kind of like a stamp of the same image! Pop art, which is short for “popular art”, featured common household objects and consumer products like Coca-Cola and Campbell’s Soup cans, as well as forms of media—such as comics, newspapers, and magazines—recognizable to the masses.
Have you ever seen a flying pizza before? Oldenburg is making an everyday object that we all know and love to do something out of the ordinary. Having an object perform an abstract action is Oldenburg’s unique way of using storytelling in his artwork. What do you think the story of this flying pizza could be about?
We will be getting inspired by Oldenburg and creating our own unique project that is going to “fly”!
Please share photos of your finished works of art with us on social media and check back soon for our next project! #HeckscheratHome #MuseumfromHome
