|Personal Fact of Roy Lichtenstein|
Roy Fox Lichtenstein was a pop artist from America whose works, in comic strips style, portray the shallowness of the culture prevalent in contemporary American life. With bright, loud colors and techniques closely related to the printing industry, he paradoxically integrated the bulk-produced emotions through consumerism into classy references to art history and famous works of artists from the bygone centuries, depicting the frivolity of today’s era in the harsh contrasting background of the sophisticated artistic contexts.
Lichtenstein is one of the two most recognized names in pop art, for his work had the queer mixture of sardonic sense of humor and careful technique. Throughout his creative journey he was inspired by artists like Allan Kaprow, Russ Heath, Edgar Degas, Irv Novick, etc. He taught art at Rutgers University for a few years after finishing his master’s degree in fine arts from Ohio University.
He had a brief history of working as a draftsman in the army during World War II, an experience that he often included in his artistic depictions. He worked tirelessly, producing masterpieces of revolutionized paintings and sculptures, sometimes even working for 10 hours straight in his studio, yet he considered his creative products not important enough to the world of art.
