Deviating from street art for a moment, here is a graphic artist who’s work ranges from published graphic design to eccentric, colorful sculptures created from reused materials. Dan Friedman was a graphic designer who created work through the 70s into the early 80s and contributed to the post-modern and new wave typography and design movements. He also had a career teaching design and in his later years focused on creating found object furniture and sculptures that are reminiscent of 80s textile design. His work can be seen in the MoMA and it is also displayed in the AIGA National Design Center Gallery on 5th Avenue in Manhattan until January 9th. His work is worth the trip!
