The Artist

Tom Wesselmann

United States-born Tom Wesslemann was a Pop Art originator. Along with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, he was part of a group of New York artists in the 1960s that shocked and shook up not only the institutions of the art establishment, but also the cultural of idea of what constitutes art. His subjects were mundane objects and the imagery of advertising, including still life, figures and landscapes. He used a graphic design-style way of painting on large canvases, making use of strong strokes and colours, creating something seemingly simple yet full of meaning.
