From February 1st 2013 to March 30th 2013 – Galerie Fluegel-Roncak
Robert Longo who was born 1953 in Brooklyn/New York, is an American Artist who became famous for his large scale photorealistic charcoal drawings.
He has developed several distinct bodies of work including monsterwaves about to break, atomic clouds rising into the sky, sharks or tigers. The bombs and the waves are things that exist at the moment of their being he explains: a bomb is meant to explode, a rose in born to bloom, a wave is destined to crash. They are at the moment of their fulfillment.
Robert Longo has had retrospective exhibitions at the Hamburger Kunstverein and Deichtorhallen; the Menil Collection in Houston; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; the Hartford Athenaeum and the Isetan Museum of Art in Tokyo and many more.
His works are in all major museum collections worldwide.
