John Olsen (Australian Heroes)

John Olsen.
Australian Artist.

If you've never seen his pictures, you're probably going to react with- WTF?

I know art is a matter or personal taste and modern art is a love it or hate it response.
I love Olsen's pictures more than any other Australian artist. I could show many other artists and their works who are more famous or demand astronomical prices at auctions. That's not important. Olsen's paintings don't come cheap. But I think they are so full of irreverance, so playful, so cheerful, so free in spirit. I love them.

Yep ... "He is not my cup of tea". If the art is in a way so I can do it myself...Then it is not art in my eyes.

Maybe I can find some art that you will like. I'll keep trying.
