About Ed Ruscha

Edward (Ed) Ruscha IV (American, b. 1937) is associated with the Pop art movement. Encompassing painting, drawing, and photography, Ruscha's works hold a mirror up to the banality of urban life and gives order to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confronts us daily. Ruscha's early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence his aesthetic and thematic approach. He regularly combines the cityscape of his adopted hometown of Los Angeles with a typically American vernacular to communicate a particular urban experience.
