An all-new collection of paintings and sculpture by art legend Robert Williams. First exhibited at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in early 2015, the work in this oversized, hardcover exhibition catalog is accompanied by insightful essays by the artist. --- "The current international capitol of artistic sophistication is New York City. Ever since the end of the Second World War, every small city in the United States that has an art community has looked to New York for cultural parenting. However, an interesting anomaly has developed over the years. "Sophistication," like any other folkway, travels slowly with misinterpretations happening along the way. By the time high culture reached the West Coast it had traded its Brooks Brothers suit for cut-offs, a Hawaiian shirt, and flip-flops. Art on the West Coast, as much as it tries to maintain blue blood affectations shows mutations. It just doesn't have the aloof adroit coldness the Eastern Seaboard art society seems to portray." - Robert Williams, from his introduction to Slang Aesthetics

About the Author:

Robt. Williams has spent his career challenging the fine art establishment with an unrelenting onslaught of work too boisterous to ignore. His journey through hot rod culture, underground comix, punk rock, and East and West Coast gallery scenes has been revolutionary. In addition to shattering the boundaries of contemporary art through his provocative paintings, he has rallied a new generation of artists through the creation of Juxtapoz magazine. He is the leading pioneer of an unstoppable art movement that he has described as "Feral Art"...art that's had to raise itself out of the wilderness.

Review:

"... Williams and his art are born of a uniquely California confluence of cultural phenomena: car culture, alternative comics, skateboarding, animation, pornography and the entertainment industry." -- Carolina A. Miranda, Los Angeles Times
