Nicholas Krushenick was born in New York in 1929. He began his artistic career at the Art Students League after serving in World War II. Krushenick's early development coincided with the shift away from Abstract Expressionism and towards Pop that occurred in America in the late 1960s, and his use of strong colour and bold black outline in his graphic paintings and prints are indeed indicative of a Pop sensibility.

Farifax and mustard, a colour lithograph completed at Gemini Ltd in 1965, is a typical example of this tendency.
