->''Art doesn't transform. It just plain forms.''

RoyLichtenstein (1923-1997) was one of the leading artists of the Pop movement, along with Creator/AndyWarhol. At the height of his fame, his work mostly consisted of lithographs recreating panels from comic books, although he later branched out to abstract metal and plastic sculpture. Although he was American by nationality, he considered the Pop movement to be "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting." He's best known for his lithographs, however, such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roy_Lichtenstein_Drowning_Girl.jpg Drowning Girl]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roy_Lichtenstein_Whaam.jpg Whaam]]. He made use of such techniques as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-Day_dots Ben-Day dots]], bright colors, and bold outlines to create a mass-produced effect similar to Andy Warhol's silkscreen prints.
