Artworks that feature repeated small spots or circles. Arguably the most recognizable contemporary examples of this type of work are Damien Hirst’s series of “Spot Paintings” and various works by Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, in which he used the Ben-Day dot printing process (commonly used in comic books) in the realm of painting. In addition, spots or dots have been central to various other movements, such as Op Art, psychedelic art, and Pointillism, where a dotting technique was employed in order to provide a fuller range of color than traditional mixed-paint tones.
