Wilfried Sätty[needs IPA] (born Wilfried Podriech; April 12, 1939 – January 31, 1982) was a German graphic artist best known for his black and white collage art.


Born in Bremen, Germany, Sätty lived through multiple Allied bombings of Germany during World War II.[1] Sätty later moved to San Francisco in 1965 where he got a job at Bay Area Rapid Transit as a draftsman.[1] Later,[when?] Sätty began publishing his illustrations with East Totem West, a small poster and notecard company running out of the bay area. On January 31, 1982, Sätty died as a result of a fall from a ladder in his house.[citation needed]

He released two collage volumes, The Cosmic Bicycle (1971) and Time Zone (1973), as well as a number of other collections. His works have been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the National Museum, Warsaw.
