Claes Oldenburg’s Lipsticks, Piccadilly Circus

I’ve always loved this collage postcard by Claes Oldenburg, and feel it perfectly portrays the Pop art, sexy, consumerism of the London of the “swinging 60s.”

Lipsticks in Piccadilly Circus, London 1966 by Claes Oldenburg born 1929

From the artist- ‘For me, London inspired phallic imagery which went up and down with the tide – like mini-skirts and knees … like the up-and-down motion of a lipstick’.
