Born in St Peterburg in 1891, Alexander Michailovich Rodchenko enrolled at the Kazan art school in 1911, where he studied under Feshin and Medvedev. While studying he also gave lessons in drawing and painted decoration for clubs. Moving to Moscow in 1914, he studied sculpture and architecture at the Stroganov art academy.
To me Rodchenko epitomises graphic design. With simple Bold marks and limited colours Rodchenko made beautiful pieces of art. I would love an original one day (highly unlikely) but we all need a dream.
