A New-York based artist, Robert Longo is a highly recognized figure in the art world for his work as an artist, filmmaker, photographer and musician. Back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, he became known as the leading protagonist of the Pictures Generation, a group of artists who used appropriated images from mass media to make provocative critiques of the American society, economy and politics of that time. Longo's three-dimensional, thick-textured and photo-realistic charcoal drawings are a hallmark of his artistic practice. From 2009 to 2014, the artist embarked on the creation of a portfolio entitled The Mysteries. The series, exploring light and movement on a physical and metaphysical level, portrays the contradictions of contemporary life.
Study for Tiger in a Cage is a charcoal drawing created by the artist in 2010. In this iconic eye-catching artwork, Longo marries the power of photographic and filmic imagery. The artist does an incredible job in depicting this tiger in a rare but true moment of ambiguity and vulnerability.
