He describes himself as a “sign painter.” External Hexagon is one of Indiana’s many precise geometric forms based on numbers. The hexagon, a flat shape with six sides and six angles, is a fundamental organizing structure in nature, and an important symbol in many religions. In the hands of a pop artist who is engaged in commercial graphics, this reference to eternity is ironic.

The logo took off, and in May 1966 he had a show of variations on the theme at the Stable Gallery in Manhattan. The graphic became central to the 1960's visual vocabulary, appearing on clothes, jewelry, towels and rugs. The 1973 postage stamp with the logo was one of the best-selling stamps ever, the first of the US Postal Service regular series of “love stamps.” Mr. Indiana said he received only $1,000 for the design. (He had failed to copyright the logo, and so did not profit as it appeared on countless coffee cups and T-shirts.) The logo did not endear Mr. Indiana to the art establishment, and his star faded in inverse proportion to the success of ''Love.''

His work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially numbers and short words like EAT, HUG, and, his best known example, LOVE. Indiana was drawn to the existential aspects of numbers, which he regarded as the basic elements structuring our daily lives and representing the spectrum of existence, 1 representing birth and 0 standing between life and death.
