Google celebrates February 14, inspired by the work of Robert Indiana. The sculpture, known worldwide, is visible in Love Park in Philadelphia. The artist was born September 13, 1928 and has quickly conquered the art world. Belonging to the second generation of the Pop Art movement, Robert Clark (better known by his pen name Robert Indiana) has emerged in relation to other artists for his creativity and his genius.
Indiana uses the characteristic patterns of images to create commercial art approaches blended with existentialism, that gradually evolved toward what Indiana calls “sculptural poems”. Indiana’s work often consists of bold images and simple, iconic, especially numbers and short words like “EAT”, “HUG” and “LOVE”. The sculptor finds inspiration in any geometric figure, circles, stars, pentagons and solid colors. This is his signature.
The Google doodle shown today remembers the most famous of Indiana: LOVE. Uppercase letters are arranged in a square with the letter O tilted. Google reproduces and interprets this image. The letters written, all capitals, form a square.
