First published in Resistance newspapers, after the war he devoted himself to drawing and after 1959, when he developed eye trouble, he specialized in reliefs and assemblages made entirely from discarded objects and junk. In Agnès Varda's documentary film, The Gleaners and I, Pons explains his artistic process and understanding of art; what others see as "a cluster of junk," he sees as "a cluster of possibilities;" and that the function of art is to tidy up one's inner and exterior worlds.
