Lester Beall Posters at LACMA
Lester Beall was a graphic artist that came to notice in the 1920s and 1930s. Lester worked on posters for the New Deal and the Rural Electrification Administration (imagine a time where half the country had no electric power). His style was influenced by avant-garde and dada design movements in Europe. He is famous for layering images and text to photomontage effects. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art - LAMCA has an exhibit of his work until May 31st. For further information, go to the LACMA site.
