The Pop Art Female Forms of Painter Mel Ramos

NEXT IN SERIES

While many of his 1960s Pop Art movement contemporaries like Andy Warhol are no longer with us, Mel Ramos is still creating modern art work inspired by that period. Mixing real and abstract, the 77-year-old figurative painter’s work is a confluence of sexuality and commercialism. Although Ramos specializes in nudes, his pieces manage to eschew vulgarity in favor of beauty. Whether naked or clothed in superhero attire, the award-winning Sacramento, California native has spent decades celebrating the female form.
