Robert Longo is widely known for his large format, highly detailed and hyper-realistic charcoal drawings that consider power, authority, racism, social unrest and myths of American society. His Untitled (Bullet Hole in Window, January 7, 2015), from 2015-16 has become a symbol for freedom of expression, depicting the bullet hole in the window of the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris after the terrorist attack.

For our special edition, rare in its low edition number and intimate format, Longo has selected a cut-out of that iconic picture. The high-quality print is presented together with the two large-format books Charcoal and Charcoal Volume 2 in a decorative slipcase designed by the artist. 

The edition is available exclusively from Hatje Cantz.

ROBERT LONGO (*1953, Brooklyn) is one of the most influential artists of American postmodernism. After graduating from the State University College in Buffalo, New York, in 1975, he became one of the central protagonists of the "Pictures Generation". Despite the diversity of their individual positions, this loose group around artists Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, David Salle, Richard Prince, Jack Goldstein, and Sherrie Levine is characterized by its use of already existing images referencing mass media and pop culture. Longo lives and works in New York.
