John Baldessari

American artist John Baldessari rose to prominence in the late 1960s with his work that combined Pop Art’s use of imagery from the mass media with Conceptual Art’s use of language. Early in his career, Baldessari began incorporating images and texts in his photo-based art. He appropriates pictures from advertising and movie stills, juxtaposing, editing, and cropping them in conjunction with written texts. His resulting montages of photography and language create humorous and layered compositions that carry disparate connotations, underscoring how relative meaning can be.
