Biography

Nicholas Monro (born London, 1936) is an English pop art sculptor, print-maker and art teacher. He is notable for being one of the few British pop artists to work in sculpture and is known for his use of fibreglass.

Monro studied art at the Chelsea School of Art from 1958-1961. After graduating he began teaching at Swindon School of Art, then returned to Chelsea School of Art in 1968.

In 1969 he received an Arts Council Award and was included in the exhibition Pop Art Re-Assessed at the Hayward Gallery.

In the early 1970s, he had a studio at Hungerford.

His work was included in the 2004 pop art retrospective "Art and the 60s: This Was Tomorrow" at Tate Britain, and Birmingham Gas Hall and, in the same year, "British Pop Art 1956-1972" at the Galleria Civica di Modena.
