Portuguese artist Pantonio has transformed the scene of a car crash in Lisbon into a Pop Art-style explosion reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. The street “tribute” seems appropriate considering Lichtenstein himself freely transformed the imagery he found in comic books into fine art — though after I discovered the blog Deconstructing Lichtenstein I sometimes wonder if “transform” isn’t the right word for what the Pop artist did.
