Statement

Robert Longo is an American painter and sculptor. He had a childhood fascination with mass media: movies, television, magazines, and comic books, which continue to influence his art. Although he studied sculpture, drawing remained Longo's favorite form of self-expression. However, the sculptural influence pervades his drawing technique, as Longo's "portraits" have a distinctive chiseled line that seems to give the drawings a three-dimensional quality. Longo uses graphite like clay, molding it to create images like the writhing, dancing figures in his seminal "Men in the Cities" series.
