Here is a selection of Roy Lichtenstein quotes.
‘I like to pretend that my art has nothing to do with me.’

‘I don’t have big anxieties. I wish I did. I’d be much more interesting.’

‘Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn’t look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself.’
‘I kind of do the drawing with the painting in mind, but it’s very hard to guess at a size or a color and all the colors around it and what it will really look like.’
‘Yes, you know sometimes, we started out thinking out how strange our painting was next to normal painting, which was anything expressionist. You forget that this has been thirty five years now and people don’t look at it as if it were some kind of oddity.’
‘I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as subject matter.’
