American Pop Artist, Mel Ramos is famous for his 1960′s paintings of Pin-up calendars and magazines , I Love his series on the Pin-up, its just Amazing!! [little parentheses Pin-ups are arriving strong as a Trend in Fashion Inspiration boards]. His work is humorous as he often poses the women with large, out-of place objects and gives the paintings amusing titles ( AC Annie, Lola Cola ). His work can also be described as Superrealism.
Ramos, along with other artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg and James Rosenquist, produced art works that celebrated aspects of popular culture as represented in mass media.
His paintings were shown along with theirs in major exhibitions of Pop Art both in this country and in Europe and were reproduced, often with irony, in books, catalogs, and periodicals throughout the world.
