The representations go through an abstract mechanism and are combined randomly, allowing me to create new ideal worlds captured on wood. Each art piece presents fantasy spaces, many times dreamed of and in some way attained through the material concretion. Working with a dimensional medium results from a desire of achieving a different aesthetic experience. Each object represents an ideal world created by the artist’s graphic vision that cuts out shapes and colors.

During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist among others, he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art through parody. Favoring the comic strip as his main inspiration, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting". His paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City. Whaam! Early years Career Cap de Barcelona, sculpture, mixed media, Barcelona Lichtenstein entered the graduate program at Ohio State and was hired as an art instructor, a post he held on and off for the next ten years.
