This paper defines Pop art, of which Red Grooms was one of the founders, and its causative factors, such as a reaction to the increase in capitalist consumerism, particularly in countries like the U.S. during the 1950s and 1960s. Pop artists, the author relates, questioned the formal aspects of art creation and presentation and refused to be confined by any conventional restrictions. While Red Grooms' art is unusually associated with large environmental sculptural works and happenings, the author points out that his oeuvre covered a very wide range of forms and mediums of expression, some of which are described in this paper.
