The Robert Longo Charcoal Drawings take on real scenes from life. Using mostly people and animals as his objects, Longo's unbelievable drawings capture a photorealist style that is difficult to create.
Longo, in the past, has created other series wherein he focuses on atomic bombs, cleavage, or helmeted pilots. His unique skill coupled with his impressive eye for style and depicting interesting things sets Longo apart from other artists. His own sense of what is fascinating and his ability to put that onto paper and interest others makes him an artist to watch.
The shading and smooth coat of the tiger in his picture as part of this series is unbelievably impressive, as is the ferocity of the shark in the gallery.
