Funk Art

The exponents of Funk Art rejected the formalism and established traditions of the powerful art world of New York City in the 1960s. All Californians, these artists countered the beauty of the galleries and artwork of the East Coast, and instead created works that were often pornographic or distasteful. This deliberately rude movement was formalized when the University Art Museum in Berkeley held an exhibition titled “Funk” in 1967. Funk Art was a part of the Pop revolution, which brought art to a more everyday realm, either by the use of commercial materials or by subject. Assemblage, sculpture and environmental art came under the umbrella of Funk Art, and artists created deliberately poorly made, vulgar objects dealing with sex, religion, and other contentious topics. The most famous participant was Edward Kienholz, but others included Robert Arneson, Bruce Conner and Paul Thek.

I love these pallets. I have one for my warm yellows, 1 for cool yellows and you can write on the 2 big wells with the colors that are above ;if you use a woodless graphite pencil, it won't rub off easily. This way I know the exact color and color bias for my red, blues, yellows, violets, greens, and oranges. I find I only need one for my white, black/grey tints and earth tone water colors. For stains, I clean off with olive oil then follow with soap and water so oil doesn't get into my watercolor pigments.

I wanted something different to make flowers out of, and these turned out to be wonderful. They hold creases well, and a dab of white craft glue held perfectly. The results were striking, and they cut cleanly in both the punch and with scissors.
- Pierrot Lunaire in Pontiac, MI
I have 2, and highly recommend this great product. Anyone painting on canvas should have them. Its a simple idea with a funny name and a reasonable price. It makes "schlepping" a wet canvas so much easier. With 2 you can carry 2 paintings back to back.
