Robert Indiana's work has evolved into hard-edged graphic images of words, logos and typographic forms, earning him a reputation as one of the country's leading contemporary artists. He is known for using public signs and symbols with altered lettering to make stark and challenging visual statements. In his paintings and constructions, he has given new meaning to basic words like Eat, Die and Love. Using them in bold block letters in vivid colors, he has enticed his viewers to look at the commonplace from a new perspective. One indication of his success was the appearance of his immensely popular multi-colored Love on a United States postage stamp in 1973.
