Allan D'Arcangelo (1930-1998) was an American artist and printmaker best known known for his paintings of highways and road signs. The works utilize a simplified, flat plane to invoke the deep perspective of the drivers window in the expansive American highway. His vibrant colors and hard-edge graphic forms linked him with Pop art in the 1960s. DArcangelo attended the University of Buffalo and, using his GI Bill after serving in the United States army, he studied painting in Mexico City. By the early 1970s, he had established himself as part of the New York art scene alongside figures such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
D'Arcangelos work can be found in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Denver Art Museum in Colorado, the Walker Art Center inMinneapolis, the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, and many other public and private collections worldwide.
