The artist Robert Longo

  • Contemporary US artist who lives and works in New York.
  • Known for his photo-realistic charcoal, ink and graphite drawings.
  • Often uses the chiaroscuro technique in his works.

The US artist, musician and filmmaker Robert Longo is known for his large-scale, detailed and photo-realistic drawings, for which he primarily uses charcoal, ink or graphite. He is considered a talented painter of the chiaroscuro technique, and his work explores politics as well as social power relations. His art has been exhibited internationally, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow), the documenta in Kassel, the Biennial of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Venice Biennale.

Born in Brooklyn (New York City) on 7 January 1953, he took art lessons from the sculptor Leonda Finke and later studied together with Cindy Sherman at the State University College at Buffalo. In 1975 he graduated with a bachelor's degree in art and in the same decade founded the Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo with Sherman and Nancy Dwyer, among others.

In addition, he worked extensively with installations, performances, video art and photography in the period after his studies. In the early 1980s he published the black and white series Men in the City. The series of charcoal, graphite and ink received much positive critical acclaim. After his directorial debut with the short film Arena Brains in 1988, he went on to direct several more films, including Johnny Mnemonic starring Keanu Reeves in 1995, as well as various music videos such as R.E.M.'s The One I love in 2009.

In 1994 he married the German actress Barbara Sukowa, with whom he now lives and works in New York.
