Joe TilsonPage 1/1

Joe Tilson, English, b. 1928
Tilson's early work was realist in style, but with contemporary subject matter taken from his surroundings and his travels. With the emergence of the Pop Art movement, Tilson began creating works that contained bold colors and imagery. He explored the grid as a structural device. By the 1960's, Tilson was making use of screenprints and multiples, which made reference to contemporary events and to radical political figures of the time. More recently, Tilson still makes screenprints, but his preference is for more traditional techniques of printmaking such as etching, aquatint and woodcuts.
