Pop artists like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol rebelled against tradition by leaving their proverbial marks with dots and bold colors. We will show you many ways to make your own mark this Halloween!
ROY LICHTENSTEIN - POP ART DOTS
Lichtenstein literally pulled his inspiration right off the pages of comic books. Using his now infamous printer-inspired dots, Lichtenstein created iconic works of art satirizing popular comic books and themes of the time.
Dots can be used to evoke Lichtenstein's artistic spirit for a classic take on a pop art costume.
