OUTSIDER

Bigactive have said I'm an outside artist which i love! Here's a definition :

The term outsider art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for art brut (French: [aʁ bʁyt], "raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by insane-asylum inmates.[1]

While Dubuffet's term is quite specific, the English term "outsider art" is often applied more broadly, to include certain self-taught or Naïve art makers who were never institutionalized. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Often, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.




The top image is something im working on with PRINCEY who is a fellow baron. This is for the work we are producing entitled: FEAR OF EVERYTHING. The second image is something I did for FOALS. It was a Metropolis Session, where they played and recorded straight to Vinyl. I produced work in the same building on the same day. There was an audience for some lucky chaps. At the end of the day a record was finished, complete with artwork. Heres a vid of the session. A small bit of me working it, in it, innit x
