pleased to meet you:

fun facts:

born in 1900, Austria

he studied for 4 years at the Bauhaus under such talent as Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee and was later appointed to director of printing and advertising by Walter Gropius.

he spent time as the Art Director at both Vogue Magazine's Berlin office and the Container Corporation.

in 1937, some of his work circulated in Nazi Propaganda, upon which he left Germany for Italy.

he worked in America (mostly Colorado) and Germany as an architect.

::::::his range of art and design is hefty! it was hard to narrow down a few to show off here. what do you think of his work, does it grab you at all?
