John Baldessari

John Baldessari was a major American artist known for conceptual appropriation and rearrangements of found imagery. The artist often juxtaposes images culled from film stills or stock photos in ways that can at times verge on a sculptural scale. Baldessari's most iconic device is the application of color circles over the faces of figures in photographs—negating ideas of identity, intention and hierarchy.
