About the Artwork
Known for his precise photo-realistic drawings, Robert Longo’s works border between representational and symbolic. His charcoal into thick-textured surfaces technique gives his velvety drawings deep, blackened expanses and sharply contrasting whites; his forms are at once representational and softly elusive.
“I always imagine that I want to make art that is going to kill you, whether it’s going to do it visually or physically, I’ll take either way.”
"Angel’s Wing” featuresthe artist’s signature velvety black background sharply contrasted by the white angel wings. Rendered with immense detail, the result is a sublime study of religion, culture and aesthetics.
About the Artist
Robert Longo (born 1953, in Brooklyn, New York) had a childhood fascination with mass media: movies, television, magazines and comic books, which continue to deeply influence his art. One of the quintessential artists of the 1980s, Longo is perhaps best known for the writhing, dancing figures in his iconic Men in the Cities series.
About the printing Technique
The term "pigment print" is used generally for any type of printed image that uses strictly pigments. Pigments can be either on a mineral basis or they can be an artificial product. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing.
