About the Artist
David Wasserman     Tin Can Artist
David Wasserman (1917-1999) was a graphic designer and cartoonist who experimented in his spare time with metal collage. For more than thirty years, he created richly-detailed large-scale pictures by nailing small pieces of tin cans, aluminum soda cans and other metals to sheets of plywood. Since he wanted to explore all the artistic possibilities of the medium, the style of his work ranges from abstract to cartoon to realistic, and his subject matter includes famous people, powerful beasts, the depths of space, family photos, and an urban cityscape.
