The works of 20th century pop art artist Roy Lichtenstein will make their way to London’s Tate Modern: Exhibition later in February to May. In anticipation for the look back on the icon’s work, we are given a rare glimpse into the life of the New York-born painter and sculptor.
Behind his humorous and parodic works that derived inspiration from comic strips, which were sometimes controversial at the time due to their contrast with darker and more ‘tormented’ styles, was a man grounded in simplicity. From more intimate perspectives on his life from interviews including with his wife Dorothy to his discussions about his style and technique, the video is worth a watch for both those appreciative of his contributions to art and creatives alike.
