Mel Ramos is an American Pop artist, famed for his 1960’s paintings of pin-up calendars and magazines. The pin-up series is just brilliant, and the way he poses the women with out-of-scale objects is exceptionally effective.

Particularly effective is the woman posing on the cigarette packet and Kate Moss with the Catsup. By injecting humor into his pieces, Ramos draws your eye away from the naked element, and instead lets you see the image as a whole.
