The genre focuses on male same-sex love , as created primarily by gay men for a gay male audience. Bara can vary in visual style and plot, but typically features masculine men with varying degrees of muscle, body fat, and body hair , akin to bear or bodybuilding culture. While bara is typically pornographic , the genre has also depicted romantic and autobiographical subject material, as it acknowledges the varied reactions to homosexuality in modern Japan. The use of bara as an umbrella term to describe gay Japanese comic art is largely a non-Japanese phenomenon: the term is not used within Japan, and its use is not universally accepted by creators of gay manga.
Pop Art was an art movement that dominated the art world in the mid 20th century. Considered the last prominent modern art movement, Pop Art appreciates popular culture as opposed to elitist culture. It is characterized by bright colors and use of recognizable imagery from popular culture like advertisements, celebrities, mundane cultural objects and comic book characters. Pop Art may be seen as a reaction against Abstract Expressionism , the then dominant movement which emphasized on conveying strong emotional or expressive content through abstraction.
