Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein (October 27, 1923 - September 29, 1997) was a prominent American pop artist, whose work borrowed heavily from popular advertising and comic styles, which he himself described as being "as artificial as possible." Using oil and Magna paint his best known works, such as Drowning Girl (1963), feature thick outlines, bold colors and Benday Dots to represent certain colors, as if created by photographic reproduction. Rather than attempt to reproduce his subjects, his work tackles the way mass media portrays them.

Lichtenstein was born and died in Manhattan in New York City.
