Outsider Art: Beautiful LosersPosted: January 16, 2011 Filed under: Uncategorized 1 Comment
“The greatest cultural accomplishments in history have never been the result of the brainstorms of marketing men, corporate focus groups, or any homogenized methods; they have always happened organically. More often than not, these manifestations have been the result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original for no other purpose than a common love of doing it. “
I'm a huge fan of Outsider art. When I was a college art student, we had a plethora of active outsider artists working around us in Missouri. One of my favorites was Robert Smith. He used to come on campus and I'd paint with him from time to time and share a smoke. Interesting fellow.
