Contemporary art can be defined as practically any piece of art made between the 1970s and the here and now, with pop art, popularised by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, considered by many to be the loose beginning of the Contemporary era.

The style tends to be more abstract in nature, often relying on the viewer to infer their own meaning from the piece, and while there are pieces that are created as statements and reactions, even these pieces allow for diversity in interpretation.

These artworks often have a much greater focus on the world around them, drawing from contemporary situations and ideas to form a piece of social and political commentary. Since its inception, contemporary works have been employed the world over to challenge the viewers preconceived notions of the world around it, by channelling the subjects it sprung from to form a coherent piece.
