This or That: Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein was a prominent American pop artist. He was born on 27th October 1923, and later died on 29th September 1997. He was inspired by popular advertising and comic books, which played a profound role in the formation of his widely recognized style. In 1961 Lichtenstein began creating paintings using cartoon images and techniques derived from the appearance of commercial printing. His work reflects consumerism and served as a parody of modern life. Lichtenstein's most popular piece of work is "Whaam", which is featured in the Tate Modern art galley in London, England.
