Pop art pioneer Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) created his first poppy works in the 1950s: cartoon-strip style paintings, exaggerated printed dots, loud lettering and violently coloured explosions became the trademarks of his work. Heavily influenced by advertising of the time, his tongue-in-cheek style often served as a social commentary on the changing nature of contemporary American society. Bold, graphic, iconic and kitsch these are real statement prints that pack a punch.
