I think what i like most about Rosenquist is the creativity of his composition. Sometimes it's not easy to figure out his paintings, just at first. They are mostly of just random things of our popular culture put together to create an image. I also love his way of shading and blending colors together to make the images so realistic. These are both elements that make the artist a useful reference. Rosenquist was a billboard painter which is interesting but not surprising at all. His style is very suited for advertisements i think. Through his painting, Rosenquist seems to discuss the theme of popular culture and is one of the leaders of the american pop art movement.
