No Bullshit Art

Postby Fenrisco » Fri Aug 03, 2012 6:53 pm

Having posted that video of Sniff 'n the Tears' The Thrill of it All in memoriam RR3 I was reminded how much I enjoy Paul Roberts' (lead singer) paintings. Consequently I thought why don't we have a thread dedicated to honest, evocative, no-bullshit, art. Here's some good clean stuff from Roberts to get started. I'm ready to fire away with more deeply-unfashionable work from Jack Vettriano and David Mann but would be more interested to see what others are partial to.

I have a thing for the art work of Wes Freed. I even have an original etching. He is best known for doing the covers the of The Drive By Truckers records.

What constitutes art? Not an easily answered question but IMO it should definitely feature hot chicks.

I miss the days of hanging out with Wes and Jyl. Always a great time.
