Happy Birthday Dennis Hopper
Dennis Hopper, born on this day in 1936, wasn’t just an Academy Award-nominated actor, director, screenwriter, and notorious bad boy. He was also a visual artist who created acclaimed photographs, paintings, and prints.
Unsurprisingly, Hopper’s photographs have a casually cinematic quality to them, especially when he focused on his famous friends and fellow artists—such as portraits of James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol.
