Allan D’Arcangelo was an American artist who was born in 1930 in New York. As a painter and printmaker, he was a prominent figure in the Pop Art Movement who became inspired by the cultural and physical landscape of his surroundings. In his work, he often approached the future of America with cynicism and uncertainty, and was careful to prioritise a culture of protest over any aesthetic concerns. This included his use of techniques within minimalism, hard-edge painting and surrealism, which helped him to depict his acrylic paintings of highway imagery, street signs and road barriers.
