Biography

Working exclusively with charcoal, the American artist is known for his richly textured works that depict scenes and landscapes with cinematic flair. Depicting atomic bomb blasts, tsunamis, guns and sharks alongside other subjects, the work of Longo has always involved a certain degree of drama and an insinuation of violence. With a stylised aesthetic that makes references to movie screens and media images, Longo’s best known works include the series Men in Cities (1979 - 83), which propelled him to recognition.
