Ed Ruscha is an American artist associated with the Pop Art movement. He works in various mediums, including film, painting, printmaking, photography, and drawing. He achieved recognition for paintings incorporating words and phrases and for his many photographic books, all influenced by the deadpan irreverence of the Pop Art movement. Ruscha’s textual, flat paintings have been linked with both the Pop Art movement and the Beat Generation.
