A pioneer of the Pop Art movement that exploded in the 1960s, American artist Roy Lichtenstein’s influence is still widely seen today.

Creating often monumentally sized paintings using his signature hand-painted dots, Lichtenstein’s style mimicked the Ben-Day dot aesthetics of comic books and commercial newsprint, becoming synonymous with the pervasive and accelerating effects of popular mass culture at the time.

Sometimes incorporating text, his paintings and prints use irony and cliché to reflect on the contemporary conditions of his day, from obsessions with youth and beauty, to the socio-political context in which he found himself working.

This exhibition draws from the ARTIST ROOMS touring collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art.
