Michael English (1941–2009) was one of the leading artists of the Swinging Sixties in England. His art had a major influence on the rebellious youth counterculture late in the decade. English’s Pop Art posters are legendary. In them, he underlines the visual impact of trivial everyday objects while at the same time debunking them as mere disposable products. By making the mass medium of the poster his own, English negated the traditional boundaries between high art and everyday culture.
