Product description

Swiss comedian and cabaret artist Ursus Wehrli loves organisation in the extreme. In 'The Art of Clean Up' he arranges a bowl of alphabet soup, a group of pool-goers, a spruce branch and other elements of our chaotic world into neat rows sorted by colour, size, shape or type.

Author information

Ursus Wehrli is a left-handed, broad-thinking, professional typographer. His first book, Tidying Up Art, is a visionary manifesto that took well-known artworks and put them back together in his more rational, more organized, and cleaner form of modern art. In this book, The Art of Clean Up, Wehrli extended his discerning eye into the physical world to tidy up common daily situations. He is currently working on sorting things that are normally too big to organise.

Review quote

"A surprise on every spread.... The book is a great example of how a compulsion for obsession can make for obsessively interesting art." -
