Erró has gained international recognition as a leader of narrative figuration—the French counterpart to pop art that emerged in the early 1960s—and a pioneer of painted collage, which he compares to automatic writing. Originally close to the surrealist circle in Paris, he radically renounced his own imaginary representations following his discovery of American mass consumer culture during a trip to New York in 1963–64, making collage the exclusive matrix of his flamboyant oeuvre.
