Dots on Dots on Dots on Dots – Roy Lichtenstein Retrospective at Tate Modern

541660_4822035544380_1906696669_n

Expect to be blown away. WHAAAM. BAAAM. Not by one painting. But by 125 of his creations. From Lichtenstein’s earliest works, with his experimentation with Abstraction to his picturesque, larger than life benday-dot paintings – be prepared to be amazed. The show is breathtaking. Captivating.

It seems like it never ends, and you never want it to end. There are his nude females and beach scenes, his Chinese landscapes, his mirrors, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and MORE – like his infamous comic book scenes. KAPOW. The paintings (and sculptures too) vary in size from A4 dimensions to paintings (and sculptures) that are over 6 feet tall and 10 feet long – if not bigger. OMG I just can’t get enough. And you wont be able to either.

I want YOU to GO and experience the magical-ness of his dots on dots on dots on dots. Oh, and primary colours. They just POP.

I seriously he(ART) this retrospective and am so lucky to have been in London to witness it. The show is on until 27 May 2013. For more information regarding tickets and such click here. (WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO BOOK IN ADVANCE.)
