SOUTHBANK, LONDON – When the sun comes out,there are so many ways to enjoy the Southbank.
The highlight of my weekend was the Lichtenstein exhibit at the Tate Modern gallery in London. It cost £15.50 per adult to attend and a further £3.50 for the audio guide which I highly recommend.
Plenty of people attended the art exhibition to see 125 of Roy Lichtenstein’s most definitive work. I’m sure you’re familiar with his stuff. It mimics comic strips and also has his signature benday dots. Here’s a clear summary from the Tate website:
The artist’s rich and expansive practice is represented by a wide range of materials, including paintings on Rowlux and steel, as well sculptures in ceramic and brass and a selection of previously unseen drawings, collages and works on paper.
Room after room pays tribute to his extraordinary oeuvre, celebrating the visual power and intellectual rigour of Roy Lichtenstein’s work.
The exhibit finishes in late May, so best to get a ticket now so that you don’t miss out.
