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.

This paper is really nice stuff - I like it for charcoal + chalk pencils and black + white ink pens. I wish you guys carried the 5.5 x 8.5 size too, though!
- EricaMH in SF CA
I absolutely love these bags! I use them to protect my prints at art fairs & gallery shows. They protect my prints from environmental dirt and oil from fingertips - and they have the added bonus of making the presentation of my prints look professional and put- together. They're easy to seal, and can be unsealed multiple times without losing their ability to close. I highly recommend these!
- Savina in A little cabin in the woods
I love these! I've been using them by the dozen as journals. I write in black fountain pen, and there's no bleed-through of the ink from one side of the page to the other, and the paper has no trouble with any of the adhesives I've used (tape, Zots, glue) to attach photos and such. Covers are a great weight, and the wire binding seems like it's made for the Ages. I can't draw a stick figure, so I haven't actually used the books for their intended purpose (i.e. sketching), but the paper has a great feel, and, if it'll stand up to liquid ink on both sides, it should work like a dream with other media. I actually joined Mr. Art as a VIP because I was buying so many of these. There aren't too many products anywhere of which I'm this fond.
