László Moholy-Nagy was born on July 20, 1895 in Bácsborsód, Austria-Hungary. He was a painter, photographer, set designer, typographer and teacher at the Bauhaus.

Moholy-Nagy did not paint until after law school in 1918. His paintings are non-objective and strongly influenced by Kasimir Malevich, the De Stijl movement and constructivism. From 1923 to 1928, he taught as a form master in the metal workshop and was head of the preliminary course at the Bauhaus. He created the first German lifestyle magazine "die neue linie". For the first time, a magazine was not written in handwriting but in a universal font. Moholy-Nagy's generous montages of black and white paintings and color planes determined the magazine's appearance.

Moholy-Nagy married photographer Lucia Moholy (née Schulz) in his first marriage and actress and then art historian Sibyl Moholy-Nagy (née Pietzsch) in his second marriage, with whom he had two daughters.

In 1934 Moholy-Nagy was no longer allowed to work in Germany and emigrated first to Amsterdam, then to England and finally to the US where he founded the New Bauhaus and later the School of Design in Chicago.

Moholy-Nagy died on November 24, 1946 in Chicago, where he was also buried.
