Grand Forks, Dakota del Norte 1933

James Rosenquist is an American Pop Art artist. He studied at the Minneapolis Art School, and later at the University of Minnesota and the Art Students League. His speciality was to take fragmented, strangely disproportionate images and combine them, superimpose them, and juxtapose them into canvases to create visual stories. He chooses simple objects that are easily identified and do not carry any symbolic meaning.
Rosenquist received numerous honourable mentions, including the Golden Plate Award in 1988 and the Annual International Arts Award by the Cristóbal Gabarrón Foundation in 2002. His works are in major museums and galleries such as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, or the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. He has been an artist of great influence for the new generations of artists.
