Joe Tilson Prints for Sale

Born in London in 1928, Joe TilsonĀ  began work as a carpenter and cabinetmaker before joining the Royal Air Force. He then studied at St. Martin's School of Art and at the Royal College of Art, London where he received the Rome Prize, taking him to live in Italy in 1955. From there he traveled widely before returning to London and teaching at several schools including St. Martin's School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art. Tilson's early work was more conventional and realist in style, but with the emergence of the Pop Art movement, Tilson began creating works that contained bold colors and imagery. By the 1960's, Tilson was making use of editioned screenprints and multiples, which made reference to contemporary events and to radical political figures of the time
