Weirdo Noir: Gothic and Lowbrow Art Book Review


About the Book: Like a corpse in a zombie movie, the Goth movement has been resuscitated stronger, more powerful, and more contagious than ever before. From fashion to music, Goth influences have crept into every area of pop culture, and nowhere is that influence creepier, more fascinating, and more playful than in the art world. Weirdo Noir is the follow-up volume to Weirdo Deluxe, the book that brought the once underground Low Brow art scene to prominence in the public eye. In these pages you'll find the latest and greatest work from 30 Low Brow arists who have embraced the dark side, employing gothic themes in their art. Spooky and witty, Weirdo Noir is destined to become a classic of the millennial Goth aesthetic.


Our Take: Art is a tricky area.  A lot of people that I encounter feel that classical art isn't accessible to them.  What this book does is collect some of the best emerging lowbrow modern artists.  This collection includes personal favorites of mine like Tara McPherson.  All of the artists embrace a goth or underground theme.  This is a fantastic book that will give any art fan or anyone curious about modern art a great look into what is out there on the scene!  I highly recommend this one.
