Allen Jones’ firsts works are considered to be among those which launched British pop art. A display of several school buses on shaped canvases led to Jones’ introduction to other pop artists like Andy Warhol. He moved to New York City to explore artists and methods in America, and became known for his dimensional painting, or making his pictures ‘grabable’ as he would say- or in three dimensions.
