Beginning in Los Angeles, California, in the 1970s, and also known as pop surrealism, the Lowbrow art movement was born as a part of punk music, comic books, street and skateboard cultures and is seen in all fields of art. This study is the reflection of the Lowbrow art movement on visual design fields such as illustration graphic design and typography, animation and designer toys. Lowbrow artists were difficult to be adopted in the arts and design fields in the first years of the movement, because they did not have a diploma in fine arts and came from the street culture. But in recent years, Lowbrow artists have proved themselves and have begun to produce art and design works that are exhibited in different fields. The aim of this study is to emphasise the importance of Lowbrow art, which is seen as a subculture today.
Keywords: Lowbrow, pop surrealism, street art, illustration, designer toy, subculture, visual design.
