Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 - 2005) was a Scottish sculptor and artist. He is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of pop art.
Paolozzi was one of the founding members of the avant-garde Independent Group associated in the 1950s with London's ICA. Alongside teaching at various art schools he developed his printmaking and sculpture. Paolozzi was particularly interested in the mass media, science and technology.
Perhaps his most famous commission is the spectacular glass-tile mosaic that wends its way through Tottenham Court Road tube station (created in 1984 and wonderfully restored in 2017.) The Tate Gallery held a Paolozzi retrospective exhibition in 1971 and the Dean Gallery in Edinburgh, part of the National Galleries of Scotland, mounted another in 2004.
