ArtTube: High and Lowbrow Art on YouTube

ArtTube: High and Lowbrow Art on YouTube

 soto

Gotta love Internet 2.0!

OK, as a crazed art fanboy, I have been finding some great art jems on Youtube.com! ……however, in finding the stuff I like (gallery work, artist interviews, lowbrow), I have to search and sift through tons of animation (not a big hobby of mine), art how-tos, pin striping, and assorted Bob Ross-ish crafty amateur art (I do enjoy some performance art…. but, I haven’t ventured there yet). First, I have saved all my favs into a YouTube group @ http://www.youtube.com/group/popcalypse (so far, about 45). I will be posting videos often from that group!

  Since we have been on a Lowbrow 101 kick….here are two videos on the history of Lowbrow and the founder: Robert Williams….

  Here are some great vids of one of my fav artists: Jeff Soto……
