West Coast Pop ArtStreaming Video - 2010
Its influences include comic books, B-movies, rock 'n' roll, surfing, hot rods, and Cold War imagery. Art historians call it Pop Surrealism; practitioners call it Lowbrow. With dozens of artist and gallery curator interviews, along with hundreds of examples, this program chronicles Lowbrow's evolution, its iconoclasm and often antagonistic relation to abstract expressionism, as well as the rise of female artists to its forefront. Artists interviewed include Lowbrow pioneer Robert Williams; Isabel Samaras; The Pizz; Shag; Anthony Ausgang; Lisa Petrucci; I, Braineater; 12Midnite; Nicole Steen; and Vicki M. Other interviews include gallery curators Doug Nason and Billy Shire, author Sherri Cullison, Gearhead magazine editor Mike LaVella, and Annie Tucker, managing editor of Juxtapoz magazine.
