Derek Boshier (b.1937) was one of the leading British Pop Artists of the 1960s. He first came to prominence with his paintings as a student at the Royal College of Art in London where he studied alongside David Hockney, Allen Jones, R.B. Kitaj, and others. In 1962 he was featured in Ken Russell's BBC documentary 'Pop Goes The Easel' with Peter Blake, Pauline Boty and Peter Phillips. During the 1970s Boshier experimented with different media, producing photographs, films, collages, constructions, books, posters and record covers. This exhibition focuses on his graphic work for pop musicians such as his designs for David Bowie's 1979 'Lodger' album and the 'Clash 2nd Songbook', 1979.
