Cy Twombly, Internationally Renowned American Artist, Dies at 83

Suzanne Muchnic, reporting for the Los Angeles Times:

Cy Twombly, an internationally renowned American artist whose lyrically evocative signature works blur the boundaries of painting, drawing and handwritten poetry, has died. He was 83.

The world has lost a great American artist.

Last semester, my drawing professor Maxwell Stolkin introduced me to the works of Cy Twombly and I really enjoyed his aesthetic. His work reminds me very much of contemporary graffiti and street art.
