Joe Tilson - part 3

During the 1960s Tilson became one of the leading figures associated with the British Pop Art movement. Making use of his previous experience as a carpenter and joiner, Tilson produced wooden reliefs and constructions as well as prints and paintings.


Tilson's work has been exhibited regularly in solo shows throughout the world. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) in 1985 and a full Royal Academician (RA in 1991. He lives and works in London and Italy.
