A painting by Roy Lichtenstein was the inspiration for this fabric. The painting depicts a magnifying glass over a field of raster points. It's a small joke to all who know Roy's work. It's these raster points that play such an important role in his paintings and by magnifying them they suddenly become the subject of this painting.
The fabric is known as 'BILLES' or 'POPDOTS' on markets in West-Africa.
Fabric design: Michiel Schuurman
In collection: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Cooper Hewitt New York
