San Francisco-based painter Peter Saul is one of the forefathers of Pop Art. Known for his aggressive and colorful cartoonish paintings satirizing American culture’s early use of pop-culture cartoon references in the late 1950s and early 1960s has earned him the title of a Pop Art founding father, and to date, he has realized over 800 paintings throughout his career.
