This 15-ounce mug features Runner in the City, a 1926 photograph by El Lissitzky, mirrored to face itself.
To create the photo — a model for a frieze at an urban sports club — Lissitzky combined shots of the runner, the track and hurdle, and the Times Square multiple-exposure into one print. Then he sliced it into strips.
This big, high-quality mug is safe for use in dishwasher and microwave. The graphic is sublimation-printed for top quality. Made in USA.
Lissitzky was a member of the Russian avant-garde — an artist, designer, photographer, architect — and a founder of suprematism, an art movement using basic geometric forms and few colors. He infused his work with his politics; he believed art should change the world. His work influenced the Bauhaus movement and 20th-century graphic design.
