Explosive stuff by Robert Longo

Pictures from The Sickness of Reason, 2003 via [Triangulation]

New York based Robert Longo is an internationally exhibited artist who works extensively in charcoal and is very well-known for his work Men in the Cities, 1979. I love how this particular series clearly reflects the magnitude of the ensuing destruction caused by the exploding bombs while paralleling that with the bittersweet beauty of these bomb clouds.
