Showcase works from acclaimed pop artists such as:
One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol, like many other art figures, became famous soon after his death in 1987. Since then, his pop art has been exhibited in homes, museums, workplaces and other venues all across the world. Decorate your space with some of his best-known works like the Marilyn (Hot Pink) portrait from 1967, Brooklyn Bridge from 1983, Butterflies from 1955, Ice Cream Dessert from 1959, and more!
Warhol has also been the inspiration behind the rebranding of one of the UK’s leading event production companies, Mask, a proud brand of the Concerto Group.
Roy Lichtenstein is famous for his advertising art and comic strips, especially his hand-painted Benday dots. Some of his most famous works include Whaam! from 1963 and Explosion from 1965-1966, epitomising the extraordinary social change of the 1960s.
Often known as the ‘godfather of pop art’, Scottish artist Eduardo Paolozzi is famed for pieces such as Whitworth Tapestry (1967), with artworks depicting the swinging 1960s to the patriotic Cool Britannia theme that emerged in the UK in the 1990s.
Choose trendy Neon signs
Neon signs add funkiness and style to your events space, creating a colourful, authentic vintage look that’s aesthetically pleasing. They are great with vibrant lighting and carnival themes, such as in our Wonder Nights at the Artillery Garden, HAC, a showstopping event help by Ultimate Experience in the Christmas of 2014.
