John Lurie’s drawings and paintings express a disarming mixture of corrosive wit, raw emotion and unblemished sensitivity. His works bear the mark of an outsider, a quality present throughout his idiosyncratic career. To quote the artist: “I like to draw and paint. It is a river to me. I am not an Indian.”

1 thought on “John Lurie – New Paintings”
This is THE MOST exciting, inspiring, & intriguing art that I have ever seen! It inspires me to stop running from “me” & quit making excuses & get off my butt & REALLY paint, what’s inside me- ugly or not! Facing what is inside is facing the TRUTH. And facing the truth is HARD! It’s often ugly, but as the saying goes, “The truth shall set you free”. I love this man & his art! He has changed my life!
