The prints in this series were made using a mix of techniques, including sprayed paper pulp and collage. When he worked as a sign painter, Rosenquist’s job was to enlarge artwork for adverts to the size of billboards.

It was almost like the idea of listening to radio and thinking about something in the abstract.’
