One of my favorite American artists… in Singapore?
Yep. Singapore Brushstrokes, 1997, is Roy Lichtenstein’s last major outdoor installation.
Lichtenstein began making multi-colored, planar sculptures in the 1970s. His sculptures, like his paintings, are often colored with Benday dots and hard black outlines. Singapore Brushstrokes was fabricated in Bristol, Rhode Island and installed at the Roy Lichtenstein Sculpture Plaza, Millenia Singapore in June/July 1997. Other works from Lichtenstein’s Brushstrokes series can be found in Washington D.C., Tokyo, Madrid, Portland, Boston, and Philadelphia.

Singapore Brushstrokes is one of the stops on Marina Bay’s public art trail (PDF map) which includes 20 sculptures by local and international artists. I admit, I didn’t complete the 6km walk. The sun was setting and the light was most unsuitable for taking photographs.

If you go, know that the plaza that houses Singapore Brushstrokes is cordoned off due to construction. Anyone know when it is scheduled to reopen?
