Get your eyes inside this book, Underground art at best
These people are doing some really great things in the world of art.
Very illuminating as to what is going on in the real art scene, not the pretentious abstact-i've-seen-it-already-a-million-times-before and done by every wannabe artist that gets out of art school. these are what will be considered masterpieces in about 75 to 100 years from now. some are cute, some are disturbing, some are gross, some are clever, some are ugly, some are obtuse. but none are facile or shock you for shock's sake. they do what art is supposed to do - get a reaction and make you thi ...more

Kinda like it so far....I will update after fully read. Seems to be trying to be too heady and arty...if those are words for a book. BUT the pictures are wonderful. I like the reader engagement of EDGYcute better so far! Its a good one tho.
A good selection of some of the biggest names in LowBrow art today. I would have added and excluded a few, but overall, a nicely done book.
My favorite artists were Scott Musgrove, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden and XNO. Nod to Niagara. I had to use ILL to get this book.

Several of my favourite artists are included in this fun coffee table collection. Good stuff!
