Whimsical pictures abound in this category of pop art images. These works often venture toward the ridiculous spectrum of spoof art but are no less characteristic of these pop art images. Works like 'Art Attack' by Banksy and 'Napoleon Raptor Crossing the Alps' are considered whimsical pictures. However, an interesting difference between whimsical spoof art and other whimsical pictures is that the subject itself makes it whimsical. Unlike other whimsical images which rely on simplicity and color schemes, spoof art is often realistic and representational of the original work.
Spoof art is, in many ways, a byproduct of both pop art and surrealism. surreal art is a very important aspect of these works and can be seen in such unusual modern prints as 'Sunday on the Beach' by GI ArtLab. Although occasionally considered inappropriate, spoof art is a unique look at modern culture and impressions that doesn't take itself, or anyone else, too seriously.
