Ed Ruscha

Ed Ruscha is an America artist who pairs text with drawings and paintings. His images are often simple and filled with colour, whilst the language is often humorous and quite poetic. Instead of just painting or placing words on his canvas, he pays a great deal of attention to the font and the placement. The it then becomes something visual and more of an object rather than plain text.

The relationship between the text and images can be mysterious. The audience will then observe more closely to both to try and figure out the link within the objects. There is a juxtaposition between art and design similar to what is seen in pop art.
