    This is my kind of art, the low-brow kind. Tattoo's, hot rods, B-movie posters all that 50's stuff. The book is fantastic, a few of the artists have written some pieces to explain the rise of this art movement. You have some of the work by Robert Williams who has some of the best titles ever..." Allegations of fairy abuse on chicken hawk island". Then there is Mark Ryden who has an obsession with Nixon, real bizarre stuff.

Finally my favourite Camille Rose Garcia whose art is stunning, I could spend hours looking at her stuff and finding new things each time. A fantastic collection that has to been seen.

    Starts with 3 essays - the first one tells us about culture in America in 1950s/60s and how the whole art based on cartoons and popculture emerged and how society gained interest in it, the next two defines the whole art movement and the attitude of the artists that sort of belong to the movement. Then there is a selection of art works and artists, which shows the diversity and influence from horror, pop culture and the 1960s - 50s american pop culture and also a mixture of other cultures - it w Starts with 3 essays - the first one tells us about culture in America in 1950s/60s and how the whole art based on cartoons and popculture emerged and how society gained interest in it, the next two defines the whole art movement and the attitude of the artists that sort of belong to the movement.

    I've been a fan of Ryden, Shag, Tim Biskup, Camille Rose Garcia & Marion Peck since reading 'Juxtapoz' in the 90's and visiting La Luz de Jesus in LA, so this book brought me right back. One star added for Larry Reid's essay, 'Mid-Century Dementia and Bad Ass Low Brow', but one star lost for Carlo McCormick's description of the genre as 'uncivil, irascible, voyeuristic and narcissistic.' But he's probably spot on.

    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 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 think.

    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.

    Love the work of Camille Rose Garcia and Alex Gross. Most of the others ventured a bit too much into cartoonish for my taste.

    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.
