Johnny Mnemonic

Robert Longo

Robert Longo is a contemporary American artist, painter, and sculptor. He achieved his first successes in the early 1980s with his series Men in the Cities: large charcoal drawings depicting men and women against a pristine background, soberly dressed in black and white, adopting constrained, contorted poses. Some of his work from this serie was prominently displayed in the apartment of Patrick Bateman in the film American Psycho (2000). Subsequently, his works took a more sculptural turn with pieces like Sword of the Pig and Combines. In 1995, his passion for cinema led him to direct his only film to date, the cyberpunk Johnny Mnemonic. Werner Spies describes Longo's style as "fatal romanticism."
