About

Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924–2005) was one of the pioneers of the Pop art movement in the UK. Born in Scotland, Paolozzi was a compulsive collector and a jumbler of icons. He is equally revered for his sculptures and his kaleidoscopic print projects.

General Dynamic F.U.N, is a series of fifty screenprints and photolithographs created by Paolozzi between 1965 and 1970. Here Paolozzi employs the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorges on its idols – the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. The artist's friend and sometime collaborator, J.G. Ballard, described General Dynamic F.U.N as a 'unique guidebook to the electric garden of our minds'.
