The Restorative Magic of Jeanie Tomanek’s Multi-Layered Dreams

"My style is a bit primitive and imperfect at times. I like this raggedness, because it shows the dual meaning of actual battle with the materials and the protagonist’s struggle with her situation."

Glenn Brady, Painter, Queensland, Australia

“I moved out to live with a bunch of other drunken teens. Around 1982 with no family around, I found punk rock, and got very involved in it. Like being a kid again. And part of ‘something.’ Colorful. And loud.”

My color combinations and mixing is nothing more than intuitive and all me. That’s why I call myself an Outsider Artist. I’m outside of the rules, and that feels right to me.”

Ian Gamache: Outsider Artist

I don't consider what I do to be 'whining', in fact part of me agrees with the 'pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps' philosophy; but not everybody has boots, or even legs for that matter.

Keemo, Outsider Artist, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“I suppose according to the definition, I would be considered an outsider artist. Although, I don’t really give any thought to what label might be appropriate to where I fit into the art world. I just keep trying to make the art that I want to make and that is about it.”

Dante Horoiwa, Contemporary Painter

"After a mural is finished, people will begin to picnic in front of the painting. It is almost impossible not to look at it if you are passing by. Whereas in an indoor space, you only enter if you intend to. There is less opportunity for encountering the artwork." ~Dante Horoiwa
