Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern

Tate Modern is hosting an exhibition based on the great American artist, Roy Lichtenstein. Alongside Andy Warhol, Lichtenstein was an influential part of the Pop Art visual movement. The exhibition at the former Bankside power station will bring together and celebrate 125 of his best paintings and sculptures for the first time in twenty years. These includes such classics as Whaam!, Drowning Girl and Oh, Jeff... I Love You, Too... But...

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective opens this week and will go on until 27 May 2013. Tickets are available for £14. So, fans of Pop Art, go get your comic art fix. An app accompanying the exhibition is also available for iOS devices (only - boo!).

Incidentally, BrewDog, everyone's favourite rebel brewer, has crafted a special edition Lichtenstein beer called the Torpedo beer, featuring the artist's Torpedo... Los! artwork. Awesomeness.
