Mel Ramos: Exceptional Editions
(1000 items available)
Exceptional Editions compiles all of the special editions produced by the great American Pop artist Mel Ramos (born 1935), including sculptures, works on enamel, backlit frames and bas-relief works, as well as all of the prints published since 2013 (thus updating the previous volume Mel Ramos: New Prints). Like his fellow painters Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, Ramos adopts motifs from mass media and advertising. In the early 1960s he attracted attention with painted appropriations of comic book heroes such as Batman and Superman. In the mid-60s, he began to incorporate pin-ups into his paintings, which he juxtaposed comically and revealingly with American consumer products.
