WALLACE BERMAN (1926-1976)

Opt. 82. Booster BNG.
Offset lithograph poster. 635x560 mm, 25x22 inches. Hand-signed and numbered 87/100 by the artist in pen. [John Martin, Topanga] 1967.

Berman was an avant-garde filmmaker, artist and collagist, whose work was associated with the Beat Movement and the post-war California art scene. In addition to his influential work he also had a minor role in "Easy Rider" (1969) and appears on the cover of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. Berman frequently used the image of a transistor radio (as here) filled in with myriad different images.
