Pop Art speaks to the youth of today and all lovers of contemporary art. It speaks of culture highlighting how street art and graffiti jumped to the modern art galleries. It reimagines what art is and its relevance to modern-day society.
Enjoy great works from the icons of Pop Art with Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Jeff Koon, which are all on display at the MUST SEE exhibition at HOTA on the Gold Coast.
Warhol Pop Art
HOTA Gallery – Home Of The Arts - is hosting its first-ever international blockbuster exhibition from the Mugrabi Collection, New York with a collection of works never before seen in Australia. This collection of iconic Pop Masters is a true coup for the ever-growing HOTA gallery as it makes its imprint on the Gold Coast and national art scene.

Quote from HOTA, "Pop Art is larger than life. Often witty and always insightful, it comments on commercial and popular culture by reimagining the world around us - transforming the every day into the extraordinary. In the spirit of Pop Art, this exhibition is adventurous and shamelessly bold, featuring legendary artists that defined a generation."
If you think you know nothing about the artists of the movement, you might be surprised as Pop art includes imagery from popular culture, and if you feel the need to know more the HOTA Gallery staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have.
