We recently came across the mind blowingly detailed charcoal work of Robert Longo which led us to do a little digging to see what’s going on with this talented and renowned artist. His twenty year retrospective (1979-2009) show at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nice, France just opened last month and will be showing until the end of November.  Not sure exactly which works were included but our vote would have been for some of his newest work this year from the YingXiong (Heroes) series, an example of which seen above.

More from the series after the jump.
