Richard Hamilton, called ‘the father of Pop Art’, has died aged 89. The artist has been one of the leading figures of the contemporary art world from the moment he attracted attention with his outstanding collage Just What Is It That Makes Today’s Homes So Different, So Appealing?, featured at the This is Tomorrow Exhibition (Whitechapel Gallery, London 1956). From then on he was considered the father of Pop Art and regarded as a pioneer in this field.

Currently Hamilton was working on a retrospective of his artwork which is being on view in Europe (Madrid, London) and U.S.A. (Philadelphia, Los Angeles) in 2012.
