Born from the bold, provocative aircraft nose art splashed across war birds of World War II, Lowbrow Art was carried to the streets by the mechanics and car builders of the 1950s and 1960s. Dripping with rich color, street-level sensibilities, and flamboyant style, Lowbrow Art was custom built in those middle decades of the twentieth century around racy cars and racier women.
Presented here in over 250 full-color images, is the contemporary artwork of twenty ambitious ladies, each a talented artist who has staked a claim in this outsider art genre, once produced solely by and for men. In the text, each artist's story is presented along with her work and essays from Chris Pfouts and Anthony Ausgang. Enjoy and relate to this distinctive art style.
