John Baldessari

Professor Comberg showed me this artist today, and I thought his work was worth sharing with the whole class. You can read a bit about him here http://www.npr.org/2013/03/11/173745543/for-john-baldessari-conceptual-art-means-serious-mischief, but I also recommend you just do a Google image search to see what his art is all about. Just as we are using Illustrator to alter images from Processing, Baldessari alters found photographs by blocking out certain areas, creating conceptual pieces that are funny and a bit disturbing (like these great Supreme skateboards below).Image
