Colin E Self (born 1941 in Rackheath, Norfolk) is a draughtsman, printmaker, sculptor and painter. He is best known as a ‘Pop Artist’, whose work addressed the theme of Cold War politics. He studied first at Norwich Art School and in 1961 he entered the Slade School of Fine Arts in London. Whilst at the Slade, he met artists, David Hockney and Peter Blake, who greatly admired Self’s paintings. He went on to become one of the forerunners, along with the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, of the ‘Pop Art’ movement. Art by Colin Self has been exhibited at the Tate and they hold 34 pieces of his artwork.
The signed etchings make up the artist’s Odyssey/Iliad Suite, in which Self re-tells the Homer’s classical story using contemporary found-imagery and themes. Individual etchings from the series were limited to 40 copies of each.
