Eduardo Paolozzi’s (1924–2005, British) prints merge popular culture and modern abstraction. Paolozzi was a forerunner to Pop Art and drew inspiration from popular sources in media, fine art, and modern abstraction of his day. The colorful portfolio General Dynamic F.U.N. (1980) includes an eclectic mix of imagery and abstract compositions appropriated from television and print advertisements. Similar to Andy Warhol’s screenprints that depict famous personalities and consumer products, the purposeful casualness of the iconic, Western representation of Jesus in the work Jesus colour by numbers from General Dynamic F.U.N. evokes the aesthetic of advertising.
