Overview

David Weidman's name may not be familiar, but his work certainly is. Weidman began his career as an animator in 1950s Los Angeles, painting backgrounds for Hannah Barbara and setting the standard for the look of cartoons of that era. However, like a true entrepreneur he soon began to work for himself, and went on to establish a style that is today instantly recognizable and iconic. A printmaker, ceramicist, font designer, painter, cartoonist, and silk screener, Weidman never stopped experimenting as an artist. Today at age 87 Weidman's staggering body of work is just as modern and visually stunning as it was forty years ago. His graphic sensibility and expert use of saturated color palletes evoke the vintage modern look while remaining completely relevant to contemporary designers. The Whimsical Work of David Weidman is a long overdue career retrospective of a true originator, who created the look of an era.
