If you ever wanted to learn about how the “Low Brow” art movement started, this series of videos posted by sketchv might interest you.  Broken into 11 parts (Part 1 seen above), these videos recorded the lecture of Robert Williams at the Oakland Museum of California a couple months ago that was part of the L.A. Paint show (currently showing still).  Although not the best quality, Williams can be heard covering a wide variety of topics as well as talk about over 60 of his paintings.  For example, he discusses his masterpiece, Appetite for Destruction, which AM coincidentally saw for sale at Art Basel. This painting was used on the cover of his first book, which was instrumental in coining the term “Low Brow” art – a term that still remains controversial to this day.

Robert Williams is actually a very entertaining and engaging speaker so if you are interested, we invite you to watch the rest after the jump.
