About Allan D'Arcangelo

Painter and printmaker Allan D’Arcangelo is best known for his abstract paintings of highways and road signs, or “Pop imagery snugged into formal tropes of hard-edged abstraction,” as a New Yorker reviewer once described it. Often depicted from the driver’s perspective, D’Arcangelo’s paintings incorporate simplified, flat color planes and fragmented geometric forms, superimposing cropped road signs, forms resembling broken glass, and vague highway imagery over two-dimensional, endlessly rolling landscapes. D’Arcangelo always maintained a strong fascination with industrial imagery and scenery, and is considered one of the earliest American Pop artists.
