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.

Latest Product Reviews

This pen is an essential part of sketching I do for design clients. It has the perfect tip, almost brush-like, and the water color ink doesn’t react with the art markers I use with it. Also the price at Mister Art is the best!

I use Stickles Glitter Glue, in my art journaling and in a recent Mandala picture. I would like them better if they came in a bigger bottle. I do like the sparkling effect they impart.

I love these crayons; they are great for mirror or window art, and blend very well together.
