XNO!  One of my FAVORITE "lowbrow" artists!  PHENOMENAL traditional paintings that art HILARIOUS and CREEPY!  It doesn't get any better!  There isn't a lot of information on this artists but I was able to find a short bio from his older site that is no longer online:

From the old LowBrowArtWorld.com site:

"XNO STARTED HIS ART CAREER AT Memphis art college in the 80’s. He started doing illustrations for a punk rock mag called Malice where he got his name, XNO. Soon he was doing self-published underground comics with his own company XEX graphics. This led to him getting published in R. Crumbs comic WeirdO and Ray Zones 3d comics with such notables as R.K. Sloane and Big Daddy Roth. In the 90’s his career got a kick-start with a show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery alongside R.K. Sloane. Since then he has done several one man shows and has been in many group shows INCLUDING New York’s psychedelic Solution AND Los Angeles’s Tamara Bane Gallery. He was even in a show at the Laguna Art Museum last year. He has done skateboard designs for Veriflex and surfboard graphics for Slap On. He has been published IN Thrasher magazine, Hustler magazine AND A card series for Topps bubble gum called, Dinosaurs Attack. He even did a stint at MTV with some computer animation."

This week I will be posting two parts of my all time FAVORITE XNO artworks!  Be sure to check out all his AWESOME art!
