Roy Lichtenstein Tribute
Many recognize pop artist Roy Lichteinstein’s iconic work like the Crying girl or Drowning girl. But some of his work that I was quickly drawn to were his series of Brushstroke paintings from the 1960s.
Much like the other pop artists who were inspired by comic books and parody, articles reference these Brushtroke pieces as a way for him to “quote” gestural brushstroke that characterizes Abstract Expressionism. I also love the way he took this concept a step further by creating large, three dimensional pieces to place around urban cities.
I was inspired by Lichtenstein’s work during a period of introspection. As I was focused on understanding my why, my focus, and the tribe that would help me get me to the next level, I created this mini-series of Brushstroke-inspired illustrations.
