Just strolling along 34th Street in Manhattan and oh here’s the Macy’s windows and their group exhibition, “Art Under Glass.” The serigraphs and lithographs (of which the above and below is included) of Pippo Lionni caught my eye instantly.
Using the ubiquitous figures for man and woman found on street signs and bathroom doors, Lionni creates a commentary on society, communication, technology, consumption and more. As a designer these really appeal to me because of their iconic simplicity and recycled usage. In my dreamy mind I like to think my work with the repurposed Ready.gov imagery is of a similar ilk.
