Colin Self

Colin Self was born in Norwich in 1941 and came to prominence with the Pop Art scene of the 1960s.  He attended the Slade School from 1961 to 1963.  At this time, he got to know David Hockney and Peter Blake, who began to collect his work.  He is a prolific draughtsman, painter, printmaker and sculptor and is now recognised as an important and innovative artist. 

The Tate Gallery has 76 pieces of his work in their collection.  Since 2000, he has embarked on the open-ended series of etchings called the Odyssey/Lliad suite of work which consists of approximately 40 multi-plate etchings.
