Head in the Clouds ©

from 29.00

The world is filled with people with their heads in the clouds. This painting is all about that. As you can see the man in a suit smoking a cigar is in his own world never noticing the tragedy in the world around him. The world is on the precipice of destruction of our own doing. We need to wake up to this reality.

As an art dealer we mainly try to maximize the opportunity to provide artists by making a living by the sale of their art. At the same time I believe everyone needs art in their life. So we do sell the paintings Jean creates for thousands. So you can own one of these amazing works of art, we are pricing them starting at $29.00. All of the prints are done on archival paper with ink that will last hundreds of years. It is a great value for you to purchase one of these prints that looks extraordinarily like the original painting. XOXO 

For years I have been advocating that artists create cheap art products that any consumer could easily afford. I realized this in 1993 when working with Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Robert Williams. They created mass produced products such as stickers, posters and books. They relied on popular culture to help them survive as artists. And it worked! Robert Williams created Juxtapoz magazine and the low brow art movement became a giant in the art world. Really, people should buy art because they like it and want to support culture.

Below is a Manifesto created by the Bread and Puppets group out of Glover, Vermont. 

The Why Cheap Art Manifesto

People have been thinking too long that art is a privilege of the museums and the rich. Art is not business! It does not belong to banks and fancy investors. Art is Food! You can’t eat it but it feeds you. Art has to be cheap and available to everybody. It needs to be everywhere because it is the inside of the world. Art soothes pain. Art wakes up sleepers. Art fights against war and stupidity. Art sings Hallelujah! Art is for kitchens! Art is like good bread! Art is like green trees! Art is like white clouds in blue sky! Art is cheap! Hurrah! “
