Joe Tilson belongs to the generation of British artists — including Peter Blake and David Hockney — who were experimenting with screen printing. Originally associated with the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s, his imagery was drawn from newspaper photography, the media and iconic personalities of the decade. Tilson saw the sixties as a moment of breaking through into colour, in particular the colours found in comics, advertising and fashion.
