Lou Beach

Lou spent his youth in Rochester, New York, riding his bike, building snow forts, disappointing several teachers by not realising his “full potential”. Grabbing a ride with a couple of other nascent hippies, he fled to California and it was during his time as a bookstore clerk that he was introduced to the Surrealists, began going to galleries and museums, scouring art books… Looking. And finally making art – collages and assemblage. Lou has had a rich career making memorable illustrations for 12" records, magazines and newspapers and is considered by many as one of the greatest living collagists.
