American pop art icon Robert Indiana created artworks that were most well-known for their simple and bold statements, speaking to the basic needs and desires of life. His most emblematic image LOVE, which featured the letters of the word arranged on top of one another with the ‘O’ tilted to the right, was used on a United States Postal Service stamp in the 1970’s. LOVE would also be the inspiration behind HOPE, created by the artist to support President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign back in 2008. Mirroring the Democrat’s unofficial slogan, the unforgettable illustration raised more than $1,000,000. Other acclaimed words and motifs, already part of our popular culture and iconography, include ‘Eat’ and ‘The American Dream’.
