Views on Art host, Ruth Bowman, interviews painter and print maker, Allan Dâ€™Arcangelo.
Allan Dâ€™Arcangelo, a New York state native, was quickly identified as a Pop Artist upon his emergence onto the New York art scene with his first solo exhibition at Fischbach Gallery in 1963. Bowman asks Dâ€™Arcangelo what he thinks about being categorized as such and gains some insight into the artistsâ€™ beginnings, his journey to becoming a painter, and the recurring themes of his work, from the American landscape of the highway to â€œthe duplicity of space on canvas.â€ Dâ€™Arcangelo also discusses what he considers to be a discouraging foray into the public art arena via the Public Art Fundâ€™s City Walls project.
