If, after the exhibitions at Barbican, Tate Modern and the ICA, youstill haven’t had enough Pop Art for one year, hurry down to A&D Gallery. Their current exhibition features a huge volume of work by original pop artist Paolozzi, as well as Richard Hamilton, David Hockney and Peter Phillips, among others.

Sir Edouardo Paolozzi (1924 - 2005) was a Scottish artist and sculptor. He was producing collage and Pop Art-style work in the late 1940s, long before Richard Hamilton. He founded the Independent Group in 1952, considered by many to be the official start of the Pop Art movement. Despite a long and prolific career, he is best known to many for his bright, colourful and cutting edge collage work from the 1950s, much of which is shown here.

This is a selling exhibition, with the opportunity to buy prints, drawings, photographs and other works from the same stable as those on display in the major exhibitions. Pieces are available from £25, although most are in the range £200 - £600.
