Regina Davis Izaguirre, Figurative Painter: What the Songbirds Carry

I grew up in Mexico City, where my dad and I bred a collection of close to 70 birds – mostly songbirds. As lovers of both music and nature, this was our way of converging the two ~ and to keep our surroundings as pure as possible while living in the big city. Since then, birds have been a source of inspiration for my paintings.

Leaving Normal: the Outsider Artists

One of the hardest things in the world is to piece together one's own Truth, inspired in part by what has already gone before, yet here and there altered to fit with a personal code and mores not necessarily shared by those who love you.

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.”

“I’ve always been drawn to those outside society. Myself, I feel I belong most to this side of mankind. I think the criteria people use to make this distinction is deeply wrong.” -- Alo, Street Artist

Ken Law, Outsider Artist, Taiwan

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.”

Magaly Ohika, Painter and Toy Designer

"When I was a child, I pictured the real world as a circus. It was the only way to cope with the ugly reality I found around me." -- Magaly Ohika
