Lot description
Born and raised in New York, Robert Longo (b.1953) had a fascination with mass media, which would continue to influence his art. Longo became famous in 1981 with his first solo exhibition of his "Men in the Cities" series at Metro Pictures, New York, which illustrated businessmen (and women) in fluid movements intersected by architectural forms made of cast aluminum reliefs. Since then he often engaged his paintings with 3-dimensional materials. Longo earned his BFA in 1975 from the State University College, Buffalo, NY. He was one of the original founders (along with Diane Bertolo, Charles Clough, Nancy Dwyer, Cindy Sherman, and Michael Zwack) of the highly influential Hallwalls. He is a co-founder and member of the band X PATSYS (with Barbara Sukowa, Jon Kessler, Anthony Coleman, Anton Fier and Sean Conly).
