Eduardo Luigi Paolozzi

British sculptor and printmaker

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Although primarily a sculptor, Paolozzi worked in a wide variety of media during his long career, including printmaking, mosaic, ceramics, and tapestry. Paolozzi was one of the founding members of the avant-garde Independent Group associated in the 1950s with London's ICA. Perhaps his most famous commission is the enormous glass-tile mosaic project for London's Tottenham court Road tube station of 1984. The Tate Gallery held a retrospective exhibition in 1971 and the Dean Gallery in Edinburgh, part of the National Galleries of Scotland, mounted another in 2004.
