Robert Longo: Twist & Shout

I first was exposed to Robert Longo's work  in 2006, when I was living in Paris and visited the Centre Pompidou.

His paintings are large! graphic! monochrome! dynamic! twisted! smart! urban! desperate! amazing!

They would look incredible anywhere.  Yes, I said ANYWHERE!  In a plane.  In Spain. In the rain.  In a psychos apartment.

An original print could go for 5K to 10K, so there is no way I'm going to be owning any Longo any time soon.
