POP! features the works of four artists from the USA and Japan who best represent the ethos and evolution of pop art.

Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) was an American artist who, following a career as a commercial illustrator, became a celebrated painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer, author, and a public figure moving in diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats.

Takashi Murakami (b. Tokyo 1962) is an internationally known painter and sculptor, running the influential artist-led art enterprise Kaikai Kiki Company, curating the visionary Superflat show, and collaborating in high profile projects with Louis Vuitton. Murakami is often billed as “the next Andy Warhol.”


Keith Haring (1958 – 1990) was an American artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s by expressing concepts of birth, death, sexuality and war. Haring's work was often heavily political and his imagery has become a widely recognized visual language of the 20th century.

Robert Indiana (b. 1928) is another American closely associated with the pop art movement. Moving to New York City in 1954, he won early recognition for distinctive imagery drawing on commercial art approaches. Indiana's work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images; both numbers and words like EAT, HUG, and LOVE.
