The artist

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997)

Roy Lichtenstein, a pop art icon, drew inspiration from advertising and comic books for his compositions, as for exemple Mickey in his famous "Look Mickey" in 1961. In this way, the artist criticised the consumer society of his time and the art world with humour and irony. Roy's characters are often very expressive, as he uses comic book techniques, both in his strokes and in the use of text in his paintings. Lichtenstein's work still resonates in our modern life, both in its aesthetics and in the messages it conveys.
