Mel Ramos would have been a proud 85 years old on July 24, 2020. Galerie Frank Fluegel with locations in Nuremberg and Kitzbühel therefore shows the last copies of rare Mel Ramos prints which are out of print almost everywhere.
Among them rare works like Havana, Cohiba, Lola Cola, Caramia Caramello, Zebra and others.
Mel Ramos was born on July 24, 1935 in California and is one of the most important representatives of American contemporary art and Pop Art. His works can be found today in all important museums of the world, such as the Albertina/Vienna or the MOMA/New York.
He developed his style in the 1960s, strongly influenced by comic figures and superheroes of the time such as Batman, Superman or Cat Women From 1963 onwards, he began to develop his central theme in his oeuvre:
Pin-up girls in combination with typical advertising motifs and branded articles. With this he parodies the trivial glamour gestures of the advertising industry until today.
Mel Ramos died of heart failure on October 14, 2018 in the Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, California.
