Hello dear readers,
I’m sure you must be familiar with Lichtenstein work. At least to some extent. He was an American artist during the 60’s in a movement called Pop Art that Andy Warhol and Jaspers Johns were a apart as well. He saw Pop art through a form of parody, using comic strips as his main subject. Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described Pop Art as, “not ‘American’ painting but actually industrial painting”.
You can often find his work in fashion, just last year Katy Perry wore a dress with a comic of his saying: NOO. Now you can check at Tate Modern for the first full-scale retrospective of this prominent American pop artist in over twenty years.
Meanwhile I give you some pictures to get inspired!!!
