(*) Robert Clark, who will later take the pseudonym Robert Indiana, was born in New Castlel (Indiana, United States) in 1928. He studied first in different Art institutions or schools in the United States (Indianapolis, Utica, Chicago...) before enrolling in the College of Art in Edinburgh, and then in London. Indiana travelled through Mexico, Europe, and United States inland. He settled in New York in 1958.
In 1962 he organised his first personal exhibition in the United States. A key Pop Art artist, Indiana exhibits in many places, participates in all the manifestations of the movement, in Montreal, Düsseldorf, São Paulo, New York, Chicago, Paris...
Indiana is part of the second wave of American Pop Art artists, after the first one which included Rauschenberg, Johns, Chamberlain ... Like many Pop Art artists, Indiana evolved in his own direction, picking up on his own paths that were opened by others. He uses to express himself the tubes of fluorescent lights, geometric figures, circles, stars, pentagons, with uniform colours, well delimited and without relief.
Robert Indiana admired Edward Hopper and the painter Charles Demuth.
His famous ‘Love’ with the inclined O sign would become the reference for Pop Art, an image that the artist would repeat, an obsessive image that would invade the North American world. Indiana's career, which almost became the man of a single image, reflects the spirit of Pop Art, a spirit that establishes ambiguous relationships with consumer society, between hate and flattery.
Robert Indiana died in May 2018, aged 89.
