An autistic Jasper Johns emerging?
April 16, 2010 9:06 AM   Subscribe

Alex Masket is an autistic young man and prolific artist using Duct Tape, Stick-On Letters, and Legos, among many materials. His work has a suprising vibrance and rhythm. Inspiring, especially for fans of Duct Tape and Outsider Art. Listen to an interview with his parents here. (Hat Tip to the latest Utne Reader)

It's interesting to me that I like the selections in the second link better that seeing the whole gallery in the first link. Curious how the editing affects my experience.

This is lovely! What I use to fix my shoes, he uses to create art.

Love it.

Though his parents seem to have had the right sensibilities to appreciate their son's specific artistic parlance, I think they should have refrained from giving his pieces those titles.
