The comic book genre has been at the forefront of fashion in the recent months – whether its fonts, typography or fashion (see my comic fashion post here), so it stands to reason that I would want to go to the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition at the Tate Modern – the first large-scale showcase of his work in the UK in 20 years.
I had seen some work in the MoMA New York in the summer but nothing on this scale – the pieces are so wonderfully large and you can see all the detail on the Ben-Day dots, Lichtenstein’s signature style.
