About The Artist:

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is an American painter and sculptor, was a leading member of the Pop Art movement. Lichtenstein, sought an anonymous style, removing personal reference to convey the appearance of mass production. He borrowed familiar subjects like comic strips, bank notes and advertising from magazines and newspaper comics. Using a pallet of bright primary colors in his composition, Lichtenstein developed the, now famous, technique of stenciled dotted lines that mimicked and amplified commercial printing patterns.

Rather than attempt to reproduce his subjects, Lichtenstein's work tackled the way in which the mass media portrays them. He would never take himself too seriously, however, saying: "I think my work is different from comic strips -- but I wouldn't call it transformation; I don't think that whatever is meant by it is important to art".
