Ed Ruscha

Join OCA tutor Wendy McMurdo on the 29 April in Edinburgh.
Ed Ruscha’s exploration of language and American West Coast culture centred on Hollywood has made him one of the pre-eminent artists of his generation.
Since the early 1960s he has channelled his fascination with words and the act of communication into books, print-making, photography, drawing and painting. Ruscha has held a long fascination with the urban landscape around Los Angeles, exploring the grids of boulevards and avenues that order the city in drawings. His interest in language can be seen to derive in part from the signage and billboards that articulate these highways.

One thought on “Ed Ruscha

  • I saw the Ed Ruscha Artist Rooms exhibition a while back when it was in the West Midlands, and would highly recommend it. At the time, I knew just about nothing about his work, but it’s one of those exhibition experiences I look back on as having done so much more than just introduce me to his work.
