    typography in art.

    There are a lot of high quality fonts on the amazing forum.
    Despite the high quality of the fonts, everyone kind of looks at the same blogs, ect as far as i can see.

    Anyone in interested in the relationship between typo and art ?

    a first example to get started:

    Lawrence weiner:
    concept art build up around statements and/or social theories.

    fonts he uses:
    Franklin gothic compressed
    he switched to his own font now:
    Margaret Seaworthy Gothic

    I watched Beauty Is Embarrassing about Wayne White, a Los Angeles artist who paints words on top of found paintings he picks up at Goodwill and the like. Much of the movie discusses the relationship, well less of the characters or typography, but of the words to the surrounding artwork. Generally it seems critics at least in the film look down on what he's been doing.

    I'd like to learn of more artists who focus on lettering or type.

    Dutch typographer Job Wouters is better known as ‘Letman’, but regardless of what you decide to call him, his work is always of the highest order. Expressive and dramatic, he treats letters with the care and respect they deserve and this appreciation has led him to create compelling, hand-drawn work for clients all over the world.

    His brother is an equally as exciting practitioner and the siblings have combined to create a new spray-painting machine called the Rainbow gun, which will be utlised in the gallery itself.
