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

These work nicely, they're cheap but quite good for storing and organizing pencils, their intended purpose.
- Matthew Hornbostel in Houston, Texas
Item 85485 is made for ink lettering (it is raised off the paper) and is of pretty thin plastic (not suitable for lettering with a hard lead pencil). Don't spend your money on this if you are not sure what you want. On the plus side, it has true 1/8" upper and lower case letters (not a metric substitute)
- G. Miller in Mobile, AL
Other than the few that kept breaking as I was sharpening them, I was impressed with the vibrant colors & how they went on so smoothly.
