Outsider Art


Currently watching this video. Comes in 5 parts. Absolutely brilliant. Talks about Outsider Artists and their lives. One of my favourite art videos. I feel like I can completely relate to these people and their art.

Also another good book on Outsider Artists is 'Beautiful Losers' featuring artists like Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, KAWS, Thomas Campbell, Ed Templeton and Keith Haring. The book also has a accompanying film which is excellent. Really recommend it.

In fact, here is the trailer for it...

Also, check out The Radiant Child, a film about Basquiat and The Universe of Keith Haring. All really good things to watch.

Well, I haven't been producing much in the way of art lately. I'm still waiting to pick up my canvas, then at least I can begin something. Feel very uninspired at the moment. I feel like I'm constantly try to come up with new ideas and avenues to go down. Some artists just do one or two things but do it really well. Maybe I should do that, but then I would get bored. I get bored really easily. I'm fine once I'm painting but its just getting to painting that is difficult. I get bored doing the same thing more than a couple of times. If I paint something, I don't want to paint it again. Well, maybe sometimes if its good, but once its done thats it. Whats the point of constantly revisiting it? Unless of course its a series of work or you like the idea. I also have zero room in my flat to paint. I wish I had a studio again. I had one but didn't like the location. It was on an industrial estate and I just didn't like it.

I added a new section to this site called, 'Sketchbook' with works in progress and some pages from my sketchbooks. I keep alot of sketchbooks. I also updated my About section with a list of exhibitions and a bibliography. I was just going to write book list there, because I didn't know how to spell

bibliography, lol.

I feel ill still. I think I've been drinking too much coffee, as I have a sore throat and my head feels funny. Bummer. I saw the Women's March today, good for them. Shame they have a complete d***head for a president. He's just such a vile man. Hillary should have been president.

Oh, I also set up a twitter, go follow me...
