My Visit to the General Dynamic F.U.N Exhibition

Visiting this Exhibition was very interesting and fun. As an viewer you caught a glimpse into Eduardo Paolozzi's life through his artwork and the helpful dictations written about some of the pieces and his life. Eduardo Paolozzi is also known as the 'Pioneer of Pop Art' undoubtedly. The exhibition comprised of 50 complex screen prints and photo lithographs. For those who don't know, a lithograph is a print made by drawing on limestone with wax crayons, applying ink onto the stone and printing the image onto paper. Paolozzi's style is called Pop art emerging in the 1960s. It is rather similar to abstract art but is based on simple bold eye catching images. Before this exhibition, I had never really seen anything like this before so it felt new and refreshing to the mind. 

The exhibition was like a splash of color, all the art works were vivid and pronounced into showing you a glimpse of the normal day-to-day 1960s. It contained things like famous pop stars from the era like Elvis Presley, factories, food, children's dolls and toys, advertising and pictures of Jesus. 

I really enjoyed viewing this exhibition because it gives you a sense of freshness. The exhibition is collage at its finest, it showed a sense of the 1960s through the illustrations of normal day-to-day things and seemingly random imagery.

    Though I myself don't have much experience in art or exhibitions of this nature, I think your review has truly captured the exhibition and I think it sounds very interesting from this. I especially love the splashes of colour and the 1960s as I think it was a great era! A great review reflecting your enjoyment of the exhibition, and I may be interested too!

    Wow! This trip sounds really fun and interesting! The method he uses to create his work seems very intricate and detailed, using a lot of texture! Perhaps this is something you could try incorporate into your artwork?
    Overall, sounds like an amazing exhibition which really inspired you 💖
