    The Slade returned to London, and it was there that he properly encountered the work of Pablo Picasso. Would visitors, who'd remark on a Henry Moore figure, register the Paolozzi as more than a curiosity? One early collage referencing the neoclassical tendencies of his hero was Hi-Hohe, created when he was only Faraday He returned to fragmented heads in the early Nineties with a series including Large Mondrian Head

    Some frames show faces or buildings. Founded by Paolozzi and artists including photographer Nigel Henderson and sculptor Richard Hamilton, the Group championed the use of found objects and popular culture in art. Parrot Recognising his heroes His series of 12 screenprints As Is When pays homage to the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, using his texts alongside collaged images. Diane Kirkpatrick, Eduardo Paolozzi, London Born in Edinburgh to Italian parents, Paolozzi grew up reading American magazines and pasting pictures he liked into a scrapbook; a habit that would eventually inform some his most iconic works. Templer of Malaya Why make a brilliantly conceived work just once when you can make it

    Machines and fantasy, he said, went together. And during the two years that he lived in Paris, from tohe succeeded in learning about Dada and surrealism from the artists he met, including Tristan Tzara, sculptor Alberto Giacometti and Constantin Brancusi; the bronze sculptures he made there recalled Giacometti. He was a founder of the Independent Group inwhich is regarded as the precursor to the mids British and late s American Pop Art movements. Markoni Capital, made from gunmetal, brass and aluminium, marked this shift to a new way of working. Paolozzi was interested in everything and would use a variety of objects and materials in his work, particularly his collages. During his three-month internment at Saughton prison his father, grandfather and uncle, who had also been detained, were among the Italians who drowned when the ship carrying them to Canada, the Arandora Star, was sunk by a German U-boat.

Eduardo Paolozzi underground book

He even designed plates for Wedgwood in the late Sixties. The studio was a workshop filled with hundreds of found objects, models, sculptures, materials, tools, toys and stacks of books.

When it was announced that Tottenham Court Road was being refurbished for Crossrail, many Londoners were worried that the colourful mosaics would disappear. His collages became ever more intricate and laden with messages. Human images that have mechanistic characteristics are his hallmark, as are the complex scenarios in the surrealist mechanical fantasies he produced in sculpture, collage, drawing and print.

It can be interpreted as symbolising a confluence of the two culturesthe arts and the sciences, and illustrating how Newton changed our view of the world to one determined by mathematical laws. As well as keeping air flowing in and out of the London Underground system, this is unmistakably a Paolozzi design, to be enjoyed by those passing by above ground.

And he had a distinct rebellious streak. But it was to be a far less idyllic youth when the war got in the way. Afterwards Paolozzi continued to help his mother make and sell ice cream. Drawn to tribal artwork, he would go to the anthropological Pitt Rivers museum, alone, and sketch.

His first solo show, in at London's Mayor Gallery, sold all of his brutalist sculptures and cubist-inspired collages exhibited, and he used the proceeds to travel to Paris later that year, in pursuit of art and the surrealists. Paolozzi investigated how we can fit into the modern world to resemble our fragmented civilization through imagination and fantasy.

But next to her image is a photograph of a classical sculpture with a fragment of an image of machinery for a head. Lying down this being looks like it's been disassembled into its component parts and is trying to piece itself back together again.

The title of the print, History of Nothing, is incorporated into the print at the top right.

Eduardo Paolozzi Underground

Inheriting the family ice-cream business from his Italian parents, Alfonso and Carmela, would have been more likely.

Some of these were removed as part of a redevelopment of the station, and were donated to the collection of the University of Edinburgh.

St Sebastian was the subject of five bronze sculptures and you can see their progression. Paolozzi shifted from industrial production towards the handcrafted. The bronze was cast by the Morris Singer foundry; it was funded by the Foundation for Sport and the Arts.

This period became an important influence for his later work. Despite being pressured for time I was very pleased to be designing this book. The final full-size sculpture stands 12 feet 3. These were embraced as the earliest Pop Art examples.

Thank you to those readers who pointed out the omission. Paolozzi used a projector to display collages assembled from magazine, newspaper and advertorial clippings, unpicking their artistic value. Together with Nigel Henderson he established Hammer Prints Limited, a design company producing wallpapers, textiles and ceramics that were initially manufactured at Landermere Wharf, and when his evening course in printed textile design at the Central School of Art and Design attracted the Trinidadian graphics student Althea McNish, he was instrumental in pointing her towards her future career as a textile designer.

Not, perhaps, Paolozzi, although his collages were deemed the earliest examples of Pop Art and paved the way to a whole movement. He was a founder of the Independent Group inwhich is regarded as the precursor to the mids British and late s American Pop Art movements.
