About: Best known for his teaching the influential theory of dynamic symmetry, a concept that linked the forms found in nature to that of art objects, Jay Hambidge was also an illustrator. One critic noted that he "understands the art of using colored backgrounds to set off his cleverly-drawn pictures when used for poster purposes."
