Escape Monday: “Wild Art” is All Kinds Of Awesome

046CarolHummelI always stick by the time-honoured adage “I don’t know art, but I know what I like” because there’s a lot of wanky high-concept stuff out there that people love that I just plain don’t understand.

Then there’s “Wild Art”, a book by authors David Carrier and Joachim Pissaro that takes a look at today’s coolest and craziest art, which comprises of instantly likeable pieces like the ones I’m about to show you.

I like the idea behind “Wild Art” because the people that have created these pieces are not part of the mainstream art world, but have reached a level of fame where they are able to make a living off their talents.

Think of this collection as the Fight Club of art. It’s “pure, simple, direct and unsophisticated”. In other words, it’s made up of 100% pure WIN.

And of course, my favourite:



Pretty damn suh-lick all in all.

High fives all round.
