Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Lowbrow" it may be called, but high-profile best describes the cultural impact of this contemporary art movement. Found everywhere from wine labels and high-end bar accessories to major motion pictures (Teacher's Pet, the upcoming Pink Panther), the visibility of this dynamic work has rapidly expanded in the last few years to worldwide recognition and acclaim.

Weirdo Deluxe is the first significant manifesto of the genre — a riotous blend of pop culture, street culture, pop art, and surrealism — and includes profiles of and interviews with 23 leading artists and hundreds of outrageous examples of their work. Special features include an expansive timeline, and peeks at the artists' collections and influences.

Review:

"Weirdo Deluxe is a rip-roaring road trip through the land of the lowbrow, yielding sumptuous treasure in the nooks and crannies few have peered into." Monte Beauchamp, founder and editor of BLAB!

Review:

"Somewhere on the left side of the tracks running between the underbelly and the underground, Matt Dukes Jordan is scouting the misfit masters and scouring the margins of mondo-Americana. Weirdo Deluxe is a fanatic's field guide to the inherent perversity of pictures in an age when mediation subsumes meaning." Carlo McCormick, Senior Editor, Paper Magazine

Book News Annotation:

Featuring more than 100 artistic reproductions in eye-popping color, this volume explores the work of some two-dozen artists who are identified with the "lowbrow" art movement. Independent journalist and painter Jordan provides an overview of lowbrow influences (such as comics, punk rock, and tiki imagery) and history in the introduction. Some of the artists profiled include Todd Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, Joe Coleman, "The Pizz," and Gary Taxali. Oversize: 9x9".
