Lot 220024
Artist: Seymour ChwastTitle: CannesMedium: Poster printSignature: Signed by artistDate: 1987Size: 36" x 24" * Condition: ExcellentComments: RareBiography * Seymour Chwast, regarded as one of the * most influential artists of the twentieth century * , is founder of the world famous Push Pin * Studios. It would be difficult to imagine contemporary * American and European graphic design and illustration without the * presence of Seymour Chwast. * * By the middle of the 1950s, as the Norman Rockwell epoch drew to a * close, Chwast was already known for his unique style of illustration. * His playful, expressive approach to type and layout was the point of a * new design wave based on revivalism—a radical alternative to the Swiss * formalism of the time. For over 30 years he has continued to ride above * the twists and turns of fashion; today his art is even more energized * and varied than when it originally altered a generation's perceptions. * * He * has created a style that is synonymous with * the most creative and progressive aspects * of graphic art and design. His designs and illustrations * have been used for advertising, animated * films, TV, graphics, record covers, * trade and children's books, package * designs, posters and magazines. * * *Retrieved from: http://www.rogallery.com/Chwast_Seymour/chwast-bio.htm *
