As far as famous pop artists go, it truly does not get any better than Roy Lichtenstein. His style of comic art has helped to inspire thousands of artists to hone their craft. Through his paintings and sculptures, he built a largely successful career based on deceivingly simple works that appropriated from popular comic book characters, pulp fiction, and advertisement.
Lichtenstein was in the front line of the pop art movement, which was captivated by the manufacturing process and mass consumerism. He has secured his place as an art icon amongst artworld giants such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Yayoi Kusama.
