Lowbrow art Movement. 3 facts…

  • Lowbrow was born of underground or “street” culture. Originating out of California in the mid 70’s pioneered by cartoonist such as Roberts Williams and Mark Ryden.
  • The single most common tactic that Lowbrow artists employ is to poke fun at convention. They know the “rules” of art, and consciously choose not to abide by them.
  • Lowbrow art has a sense of humor. Sometimes the humor is gleeful, sometimes it’s macabre and sometimes it’s born of sarcastic comment, but it’s always present.

In the gallery we showcase a number of Lowbrow artists. Namely Xue Wang, Nom Kinnear King and Sara Sanz.
