Designer: Arya Rajesh Patel
Pop It Up—A Tribute To Pop Art Movement
The aspiring Interior Designer Arya Rajesh Patel pursuing her BSc Interior Design from JD School of Design curated a design ‘Pop It Up’ that pays tribute to the pop art movement. The concept is to design a colourful museum. An art movement is a tendency or style in art with a specific common philosophy or goal, followed by a group of artists during a specific period of time, or, at least, with the heyday of the movement defined within a number of years. The main intention is to preserve the exhibits and to showcase pop art at the same time. Arya used foam board, brown board, clay, OHP sheets, mount board, and wooden sticks to create her design.
Arya has specified that she chose Pop art as it is fun and lighthearted with saturated colours, bold outlines, and dotted painting. Pop art is known for its playful and eclectic style. She purposefully included these works and introduced visitors to lesser-known pop art pieces. It can also inspire visitors to explore their own creativity and artistic expression.
Arya chose kota tile and ceramic tile as they are very cost efficient and eco friendly and look beautiful. Pop It Up is a special project by the aspiring Interior Designer that uses the bold and bright colours of the Pop Art. The designer has a deep understanding of design elements and how different styles are used for commercial purposes. Arya for her project has incorporated the small but significant elements of Pop art that also highlights the cultural significance of it.
“I paid tribute to Pop Art and designed a museum. It was very hectic to achieve the quality project but it gave me a good experience. I would like to advise my juniors to always start early and do good research to get the best of their project.”
