"Whaam!" by Roy Lichtenstein
Some art critics have described my work as “cartoony”. For a serious artist, such as myself, I find that description a tad demeaning but I’m not sure why. As a leading figure in the Pop Art movement, I don’t think Roy, or his wallet, would mind this handle. This week I will take a serious look at Lichtenstein’s life and work and in so doing take a look at my own. Thesis: to prove, once and for all, that the work of GNAY, although “cartoony”, is not only whimsical and thought provoking, but also relevant and cutting edge. Serious stuff.
