Men in the Cities Robert Longo Robert Longo is...

Men in the Cities Robert Longo

Robert Longo is an American painter and sculptor. Longo became famous in the 1980s for his “Men in the Cities” series, which depicted sharply dressed men writhing in contorted emotion. 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. [via]
