The Whimsical Art of Boris Artzybasheff

Boris Artzybasheff was born in Russia in 1899, and became a well-known magazine and advertising illustrator after he immigrated to the U.S. He was particularly known for anthropomorphizing machines, meaning he made them look like people. Artzybasheff gave personality to factories, vehicles, appliances, computers, and imaginary machines, and occasionally trees or even psychological concepts. Whether he was showing off a product or illustrating a political position, Artzybasheff’s bizarre drawings caught your attention.
