Recognized for making collages known as "Verifax" by using obsolete photocopying machines, Wallace Berman utilized symbols from various media sources. He was born in 1926 in Staten Island, New York.  In the 1930s, his family moved to the Jewish district in Los Angeles.  After being expelled from high school for gambling in the early 1940s, Berman immersed himself in the growing West Coast jazz scene.

During this period, he briefly attended the Jepson Art School and Chouinard Ar (showing 500 of 1556 characters).
