Don't Have Feelings, Don't Make a Scene: The Art of Skinner
A new chapter in the extraordinary and unorthodox career of the artist known as Skinner. Take a vibrant, neon tour through the travels, shows, experiments, friends, and strange career of an American visionary freak. Skinner‚s wild, graphic explorations take form in multiple media, expanding the self-reflective narratives and myths that have defined his oeuvre. Skinner‚s unusual path has taken him beyond the traditional routes of many artists, and this book documents his journey-into-the-unknown. This journey, which has come to define his career, puts zero limits on where his creativity will take him--venturing into world-building concepts in film, animation, music videos, and writing. In addition to his fine art, Skinner has seen success in many commercial avenues with identification bumps for Adult Swim, live projections for the band Mastodon, and the experimental art show ‚Drawing with Skinner‚ on Super Deluxe. Won‚t you come along?
"...one of the most visually death metal artists we could think of..."--Juxtapoz
A self-taught artist who has meticulously crafted a balance of extraordinary mural work, bizarre and antagonistic installations while maintaining a prolific commercial career. Influenced by 80‚s pop culture, human struggle, myths and violence, dungeons and dragons and the heavy metal gods, Skinner‚s mind is one of psycho social mayhem fueled by a calculated chaos. As an ambassador of the alternative arts movement, his work has been shown worldwide in museums, universities and galleries. Skinner has and continues to bring his own very specific weird art to anywhere on the planet.
