Michael Craig-Martin is known as one of Britain’s leading exponents of pop art. His aesthetic is instantly recognisable: flat forms and bright, clashing colours unite to depict banal consumer objects.
For ‘The Planets’, Craig-Martin reimagines the Solar System as a variety of colourful sports balls hanging in space. From tennis to tenpin, basket to foot, Craig-Martin’s lively array of recreational orbs makes the planetary nexus look like child’s play.

About the artist
Conceptual artist and painter Michael Craig-Martin is known for capturing the beauty in the everyday. Working with lurid and unexpected colour combinations and flat, minimalist compositions, Craig-Martin’s distinctive depictions of quotidian objects have secured him a place as one of the world’s most sought-after artists of the conceptual movement.
Teaching at Goldsmiths College School of Art from 1974–88, and again from 1994–2000, Craig-Martin was a key figure in the development of the Young British Artists, including Gary Hume, Ian Davenport, and Damien Hirst – a set who would go on to inspire a generation and leave an indelible mark on modern art. Craig-Martin’s influence can still be felt in the work of these artists, and his inimitable style continues to inspire new generations of emerging practitioners.
A custom frame is the perfect way to complement your beautiful limited edition artwork. Our custom framing is a bespoke handmade service.
Own Art is a national initiative giving you the option to spread the cost of your contemporary art with 0% finance.
