About the artist
Joe Tilson was born in London in 1928. As a teenager he worked as a carpenter and cabinetmaker, until in 1946 when he served for three years in the Royal Air Force. Tilson studied at Central St. Martin’s and subsequently the Royal Academy of Art, where in 1955 he was awarded the Rome Prize.

By the early 1960s Tilson had achieved a highly formalised abstract language made up of elementary forms, bold colours and schematised imagery. An acute awareness of the increasing influence of the media and technology accompanied by progressive attitudes towards sexual liberation and political activism led Tilson to become one of the founding fathers of the British pop art movement.

Tilson is a dedicated printmaker, specialising particularly in traditional techniques including etching, aquatint, woodcut and carborundum. He has taught at Central St. Martins, The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and The School of Visual Arts and has work held in major collections internationally, including MoMA, New York, the Stedelijk, Amsterdam and Tate, London.
