László Moholy-Nagy at LACMA

It was inspiring to see the László Moholy-Nagy exhibit this past weekend at LACMA. He was always one of my favorite artists in college and it's interesting to see how relevant his work remains to contemporary design and painting today. I especially enjoyed some of the small abstract paintings, collages and photomontages. He was a true master at balancing abstract forms and creating compositions with them. So pleasing to look at.
