Inspired by Pop Art

Claes Oldenburg is a sculptor, best known for his public art installations. 
He uses everday object and he copy of them largely.
Many of Oldenburg’s giant sculptures of mundane objects elicited public ridicule before being embraced as whimsical, insightful, and fun additions to public outdoor art. In the 1960s he became associated with the Pop Art movement.
Throughout the years, Claes Oldenburg appears to be inspiration to young artists. With increasing everyday object and placing an open setting, he completely transforms its meaning and gives another context.This kind of art is always interesting for today's audience.
