Pop art

Example of Pop Art

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Pop art presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising, news, etc.

Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. Pop art is aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. It is also associated with the artists' use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques.

Andy Warhol is probably the most famous figure in Pop Art, he is the father of the effect shown in the side image that we are going to reproduce through the Nokia Imaging SDK.

Halftone

Basically the effect we are going to create is made by composing the cartoon and Halftone effect. Nokia imaging SDK provide a good implementatoin of Cartoon filter, but not of the Halftone who is the one on which we will focus.

Halftone is a technique that simulates continuous tone of an image through the use of dots, varying either in size, in shape or in spacing, thus generating a gradient like effect.

Where continuous tone images contains an infinite range of colors or greys, the halftone process reduces visual reproductions to an image that is printed with only one color of ink, in dots of differing size. This reproduction relies on a basic optical illusion that these tiny halftone dots are blended into smooth tones by the human eye.
