A founding member of the trailblazing band DEVO, Mark Mothersbaugh has been a visual artist since before the group’s formation. Beginning in the early 1970s, he created a large body of work — paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, decorative arts, video, film, and performance — which often originates from his visual diaries of over 30,000 postcard-sized drawings. Mothersbaugh’s fascination with obscure historical material and mass-culture consumerism pervades his diverse artistic output. Also key is his severe myopia, undiagnosed in his early childhood, which he employs as a springboard for celebrating outsiders and mutations. Since 1986, he has produced scores for films, television, and video games.
