Pop Art:    Warhol, Blake, Raushenburg to Johns.

Screen printing has been an art form for many years made popular by Andy Warhol and Peter Blake. The pop artists used this technique in its simpler form alongside collage and text for immediate results. Warhol’s Marilyn and Blake’s St. Pepper are classic examples. My reputation as an international screen print artist provides insider knowledge of this popular art form
