The internationally acclaimed artist Robert Longo
It was impossible to live through the 80s in New York without knowing someone who had a print of his work. Robert Longo's graphic art was a staple in poster shops, contemporary art galleries and trendy restaurants. He's also well known for directing music videos for New Order and REM and the film Johnny Mnemonic with Keanu Reeves. He's here in Paris for an exhibition of his work called 'God Machines' and a concert with his band the X PATSYS.
One thing my mother taught me…. always do the right thing
My most treasured possession is…. . my family
For me Paris is….my favourite city
My first thought when I wake up….where am I?
The last time I said I love you was…. a few seconds ago to my wife.
My main vice is…. sports
On my gravestone they will write….he always tried to do the right thing.
Robert Longo's exhibition in Paris is called 'God Machines' and is on at the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac until the 23rd of April.
