eduardo paolozzi

i have been checking out the eduardo paolozzi exhibition at the glasgow print studio, he was one of the most inventive and prolific artists of the 20th century, studying at edinburgh college of art and at the slane school of art in london.

paolozzi's innovative use of collage, part influenced by dada and surrealism, translates well into screenprint of which he was a master of, and used this technique to create many of his most famous and memorable prints in the 1960's.

this one is turing 6 (2000) from the turing suite. the exhibitions runs until 26th september and well worth a visit if you are in glasgow. more info here.
