Fashion meets Art: Robert Longo

Trapped in Ice, 1980

Artist Robert Longo became famous in the 1980s with his "Men in the Cities" series. With the quality of photographs, the images are graphically portrayed in charcoal and graphite.


Wearing suits and work clothing, the men and women in the images seem to be caught in a dance, or perhaps something more menacing like the rat race of the working world. Longo communicates with a vivid and dynamic quality. The men and women are so life like and draw the viewer into their world of movement and mystery.

Chic suits bring to mind the art of Longo.
