Artist of the Day- James Rosenquist (click on image to see more)

Rosenquist died on Friday, March 31 at the age of 83.  He studied for a year in New York on a scholarship at the Art Student’s League and then moved on to being a billboard painter by day and an abstract expressionist at night.  At some point he decided to combine his ‘work’ images into his personal work. While he is always considered a pop artist…I think that the way he combines pieces of objects together often creates a real surrealist painting too.
