Alex Katz (1927- ) is an American figural artist associated with the Pop art movement. During his first ten years as a painter, Katz admitted to destroying a thousand paintings. Since the 1950s, he worked to create art more 'freely' in the sense that he tried to paint "faster than [he] can think." His works seem simple, but according to Katz they are more reductive, which is fitting to his personality.   more from wikipedia »
