The thin line between art and design.
Summer means heat and this NEOMANIA brings you an explosion of art creators. Watching artists like Lichtenstein and Keith Haring opens a debate: Where lies the thin line between Art and Graphic Design?
They are both great visual provocateurs. Roy’s technique imitates comic magazines and the printing process with points on a large scale. Keith succeeded in magnifying and changing the graphic and artistic language, innovating with his own unique energetic style. They use resources that continue to work today and still make doubts, if we talk about Art or Design or if Design and Art meet and touch each other in the process of creativity, being part of each other or as two starting from one same objective: expression of human creativity.
