George Herriman

The full title of this exhibition of the work of American comics pioneer George Herriman (New Orleans 1880 – Los Angeles 1944) is in itself something of a tongue twister: 'Krazy Kat is Krazy Kat is Krazy Kat'. Like other pioneers, Herriman developed his work Like other pioneers, Herriman honed his art working at newspapers that started printing comic strips at the beginning of the 20th century. His had a great influence among a large number of artists such as Willem de Kooning, as well as intellectuals and writers including E. E. Cummings, T. S. Eliot and Jack Kerouac. The comic was born as a new artistic language and brought with it a series of visual discoveries based on the repetition of patterns. Perhaps that's got something to do with the title of this exhibition.
