Allan D'Arcangelo

American, b. 1930, Buffalo, New York; d. 1998, New York, New York
Allan D'Arcangelo


Artist and printmaker Allan D’Arcangelo, whose art combines styles of Pop Art and Minimalism, is best known for his work depicting the American highway system. In American Landscape, D’Arcangelo simplifies a highway system into recognizable symbols. A single-point perspective draws the viewer’s eye to diminishing black arrows recalling road signs or telephone poles while a yellow and red striped path approaches the sky with a “no through passage” road sign.
