Richard Hamilton 1922 - 2011

Just a short post to pay homage to the late Richard Hamilton, who past away today.

I remember studying "Just What Is It that Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?" and the collage's prominence in the Pop Art movement back in collage.

It was this painting that I associated him with for such a long time until I discovered more of his work; here are a couple of my favourites.

Together let us explore the stars

"Toward a definitive statement on the coming trends in men’s and accessories (a) Together let us explore the stars" - 1962
