John Martin Tweddle
20th century
(1938 - )

Born the son of a truck driver in Salem, Kentucky, John Martin Tweddle's artistic production shares many visual commonalities with "outsider" or "folk" art, terms which have been broadly used to define art that exists outside traditional canons of taste. Although he paints imagery taken from popular culture with bright colors and in caricature-like style, he is not a "self-taught" artist in the strict sense of the term. Rather, Tweddle uses those experiences that he gained in art school in Atlanta, Georgia and from his participation in the New York art scene to create consiciously simplistic works laden with obsessive imagery that pokes fun at the idea of the "beautiful" art object.
