Roy Lichtenstein began his pop art paintings in 1961, advertising imagery suggesting consumerism mass-communication, comic strip style with black outlines, bold colors, and tones.
Roy Lichtenstein produced six pop art paintings, characters from gum wrappers and cartoons, but highly stylized. He worked in a massive scale using stencils, which produced rows of bendy dots, offering a mass produced look, making the art look machine made.
