Robert Indiana (1928–2018, New Castle, Indiana) is considered one of the most important artists in pop art: his images made of letters and numbers are art icons!
Indiana studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and even during his studies was a member of many artistic circles. As an art student he received several art grants, later followed by an array of prizes and distinctions.
Indiana’s artworks are composed mostly of letters, digits, and five-pointed stars, and have a placard-like, hard-edged color application. His pieces are considered the most radical expressions of pop art and since the 1960s have been presented in countless group and solo exhibitions. The artist’s paintings, sculptures and graphics can be found around the world in the collections of the most important museums.
Robert Indiana characterized contemporary art and pop art like few other artists. He had a special connection to Germany in particular, being the first American artist invited to design a section of the Berlin Wall in 1991.

“Some people like to paint trees. I like to paint love. I find it more meaningful than painting trees.” – Robert Indiana
