Born as Robert Clark, in the State of Indiana (1928-2018), Robert Indiana, one of the preeminent figures in American art since the 1960s, played a central role in the development of assemblage art, hard-edge painting, and Pop art. A self-proclaimed “American painter of signs,” Indiana created a highly original body of work that explores American identity, personal history, and the power of abstraction and language, establishing an important legacy that resonates in the work of many contemporary artists who make the written word a central element of their oeuvre.
Indiana's work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially numbers and short words such as "EAT", "HUG" and "LOVE".
