Last weekend I stopped by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla, to check out the John Baldessari print retrospective. Baldessari has been a big influence on my own as a graphic designer, and it was so inspiring to check out the art close up. His most recent work takes his collages one step further by adding dimension. At first glance the pieces appear flat, but upon closer inspection, you realize they are actually composed of different layers.

Another interesting thing I didn’t know before, was that Southern California has always been his home. He studied in San Diego as well as taught here too. If you get a chance to come down to La Jolla, definitely stop by the museum. The exhibition is on through May 13th, 2012. More info here. (images via)
