Robert Longo is a New York based painter, sculptor, and musician. Needless to say, he’s no mediocre artist with middling talent who uses controversial subjects as a claim to fame. It doesn’t take an art critic to see that his work is extraordinary, both in detail and in execution. Most of his recent works are done with charcoal on mounted paper. He also uses ink and graphite in some of his pieces. His work are displayed in museums and galleries all over the world. One of his pieces from his famous “Men in the Cities” series is even prominently displayed in the apartment of fictional character Patrick Bateman in the film American Psycho.
