Martin Sharp - Paintings

"I have never been shy about cutting things up if I had a good idea. To me it was worth the price of a book for the idea it expressed, the interconnecting of different worlds. I could put a Gauguin figure in a Van Gogh landscape, make the composition work, and also say something about their relationship. (Tiny) Tim's appropriation of song is very much like my appropriation of images. We are both collagists taking the elements of different epochs and mixing them to discover new relationships." - Martin Sharp

Martin Sharp is an Australian artist, cartoonist, songwriter and film-maker. Sharp has made tremendous contributions to Australian and international culture since the early 60s, and is hailed as Australia's foremost pop artist. The "acknowledged king of the UK poster scene in the 60s", his famous psychedelic posters of Dylan, Donovan and others rank as classics of the genre, alongside the work of Stanley Mouse, Rick Griffin, Hapshash & The Coloured Coat and Milton Glaser. His covers, cartoons and illustrations were a central feature of Oz magazine, both in Australia and in London. He also co-wrote (with Eric Clapton) one of Cream's most famous songs, Tales of Brave Ulysses, and in the 1970s he became a musical producer of singer Tiny Tim, and of Sydney's embattled Luna Park.
