Post Pop: East meets West - Saatchi Gallery

This interesting exhibition is on at the Saatchi Gallery until 23 February.  It features great pieces by Michael Craig-Martin and Julian Opie but I don’t really understand how these pieces fit in with the title of the exhibition. Should have read the blurb before my visit but just wanted to view the work on face value rather than have someone interpret it for me.

It is more a graphic art collection than an art exhibition and is none the worse for it, featuring 250 works by ‘Pop’ artists from China, Russia, Taiwan, the UK and America. Worth seeing.
