Opis: The Graphic Art of the Underground - Ian Lowey, Suzy Prince

The Graphic Art of the Underground: A Countercultural History takes the reader on a dazzling journey through the visual art and design of alternative and youth cultures from the 1950s to the present day. Ian Lowey and Suzy Prince 's compelling account draws upon the work of an array of artistic figures - many of whose lives have proved as colourful as their work- such as Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth, Kenny 'Von Dutch' Howard, Robert Williams, Robert Crumb, Martin Sharp, Jamie Reid, Linder Sterling, Gee Vaucher, Winston Smith, Barney Bubbles, Mark Ryden, Shag, Camille Rose Garcia, Marion Peck and Pete Fowler among numerous others. A brilliant survey of a breed of artists who never seemed to "get" the accepted purpose of contemporary art, which was to hang limply in the background of our unquestioning existence, patiently awaiting anointment into history at the auction house, but who opted instead to willfully instigate a visually stunning, culturally engaged artistic revolution. -- Ron English, artist, USA Academics and art historians might despair to the legitimacy of underground and alternative art, and probably with good reason. Lowbrow art is hardly one of the greater known revolutionary art trends like the Pre-Raphaelites, Symbolists, Impressionists, Expressionists, Blue Writers or Dadaists. However, the seeds have been sown and there is a good chance that in the future these fertile grains could be dragon's teeth. This book explores this explosive phenomenon. -- Robert Williams, artist and founder of Juxtapoz magazine, USA The editors have tunnelled deep into counter culture's underground warren to reveal a hidden world decorated with drug-induced graphic visions, rebellious poster art, anti -comics, code comix, and freak show fine art - and unlock a box full of very dangerous looking toys. Their passionately compiled illustrated history of underground art, in all of its many beautifully warped guises, will further thrill those who are already enraptured by its uncanny charms, and amaze those who were previously unaware of its existence. -- Savage Pencil, artist, UKIntroduction Chapter 1 - Remembrance of Finks Past: Kustom Kulture and Automotive Art Chapter 2 - Out Come the Freaks: The Emergence of the Psychedelic Underground Chapter 3 - Punk Graphics: The Subversion of Style Chapter 4 - LA Lure: The Weird and Wonderful World of Lowbrow art and Pop Surrealism Chapter 5 - Something Old, Something New: Designer Toys and Indie Crafting Bibliography Index
