Roy Lichtenstein at Tate Modern


Today I trotted (well, cycled) over the bridge, taking a break from the Fashion Week goings on at Somerset House to make a best canadian pharmacy to buy viagra visit to the Tate Modern and their Roy Lichtenstein exhibition preview. The Lichtenstein show is the Tate’s first since 1968 and worth a visit purely for the historical value of his work. It was a treat to see the lesser-known side of the artist, from his earlier, more folksy work like Step-on Can with Leg, to some of his thousands of drawings, it was a glimpse into the man best known for high impact repro.
I’m not the biggest fan of (contemporary) painting, as I don’t really know what is left to say about a 2D art object, but his pieces are more than painting, especially within the context of the era. As he once said: ‘All my art is in some way about other art, even if the other art is cartoons.’

    Lichtenstein is one of my favourite artists (his work is just so fun! There’s no other way to describe it, it just makes me smile!) & I am soo looking forward to seeing this in the next few weeks! :)
