The Artist

Joe Tilson

Joe Tilson was born in London in 1928 and is a British visual artist, painter, sculptor and engraver belonging to the Pop Art movement, which he joined since its early beginnings in London. He is renowned for his wooden reliefs thanks to his knowledge of carpentry, making use of usually flat and very bright colours, which are typical of the Pop Art movement. His works are reminiscent of children’s toys because of their construction and schematisation. In his paintings, he also links spaces with emblematic images, famous people and letters. From 1944 to 1946 he was working as a carpenter and he later used this knowledge to serve in the Royal Air Force until 1949. His artistic career began that same year.
