David Wasserman (1917-1999) was a successful New York graphic designer who created large metal mosaic pictures in his spare time, entirely for his own pleasure.
His method was to nail small pieces cut from tin cans and aluminum soda cans to sheets of plywood. His palette incorporated the reflective brilliance of new tin cans,
the subtle shades of rusted metal, and the vivid reds, yellows, greens and oranges of soda cans.
The artist never tried to show or sell any of those works during his lifetime, but they were displayed in museums, universities and other institutions after his death.
We are proud to offer prints and other items based on some of his remarkable works, for the first time. To learn more about the artist and his works, please
