Limited edition offset poster from the estate of Wallace Berman featuring the artist’s signature motif of a handheld transistor radio superimposed with found imagery.
The image of a hand holding a compact transistor radio superimposed with found imagery was a common feature of Berman’s Verifax collages, his best-known body of work. Here four such images are arranged in a grid above a block of nonsense text, a graphic format used in several of his works. .
