"Outsiders" Compiled by Steve Lazarides

One of the best Christmas presents I received this past festive season was from my Mum. She gave me the art book Outsiders: Art by People (hey, what can I say, my mum is pretty rad!).  Banksy’s manager, Steve Lazarides, is known for his eye for subversive, intelligent and attention grabbing artists. In Outsiders, Lazarides gathers them together to create a collection of outsider art. As the subheading says, this is “art by people” for the people. The book features such innovators as Antony Micalleff, Brooklyn-based international artist collective Faile, Parisian artist JR (known only by his initials because of the illegal nature of his work), Conor Harrington and Jonathan Yeo.
