About artist
Ed Ruscha
Omaha, 1937

Los Angeles and American advertising culture had a significant influence on Ed Ruscha's work. He often depicts urban life and western landscapes in combination with typography. The witty and enigmatic use of text in his work became characteristic of Ruscha. He alludes to the myths of commercial cultures as well as urban life in a humorous and ironic way, exploiting the immediacy of language entirely.
