More information about this artwork

American pop art icon Robert Indiana created artwork that were most well-known for their simple and bold statements, speaking to the basic needs and desires of life. His images, numbers and short words are already part of our popular culture and iconography, having been featured in TV series, documentaries, public spaces and used by renown institutions such as MoMa and Google. This set of 12 screenprints features his most emblematic image, LOVE, in different color variations. This image was used on US postage stamps in the 1970’s and would go on to inspire President Barack Obama’s unforgettable campaign logo ‘HOPE’ back in 2008.
