Artist Robert Longo catches the eye with his twisted series, Men in the Cities, 1979. The works feature Mad Men-esque subjects in convulsing poses that thrash about in the most vivid way. Despite them being purely stationary, the audience is goaded into predicting and faintly imagining their next movements. Men in the Cities is the series that made the Brooklyn native a star.

Interesting fact: Longo’s work can be spotted in the apartment of fictional character Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.
