About the Artist
Robert Longo was born in New York in the year 1953 and is among the key artists of his generation. Since childhood, Longo was fascinated by the mass-culture that is reflected in the images drawn by him. His work revolutionized the traditional way of drawing; the knowledge about the art of sculptor gave his drawings a three-dimensional look. The drawing depicts sharp, elegant, and quality in each line and strokes offering clear view to the viewers.
Deichtorhallen and Hamburg Kunstverein are among some of the most important retrospective exhibitions that ensured that Longo’s work is included. All the major museums of different countries, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Menil Collection in Houston have showcased the art of Longo.
“Men in the City” series brought Longo into prominence in the 80s and received a critical acclaim. The animal series also drew the attention of people apart from his series of drawings.
