Seymour Chwast is a distinguished graphic artist whose work has influenced two generations of designers and illustrators. He is a cofounder of the Push Pin Studios and a member of the Art Directors Hall of Fame. His work appears in major museums throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
