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

I wrote a review before seeing a video, which demonstrated how to open the luminaries so they could stand. Now I love them! I just wish the instructions had been clearer. You have to spread the bottom seam so the plastic piece inside can push the sides apart. I love that the candles light up when they touch the water, and turn off when removed from the water.

I love these paints!!! They are rich and very good pigmentation.The price is right, I wish the shipping was less expensive.
- Hadita in Olympia, WA
Miater Art has good quality items with prompt delivery service. However, when inventory is low or sold out, products should be re-stocked quickly so they are available for customers to order immediately. The wait can be excessive for out of stock and back ordered items.
