British Outsider Art

Farouq Molloy. "...Sean Molloy was born in Plymouth and started drawing while he was working the night shift as a telephone operator in a London hospital. Molloy’s early drawings on his preferred medium of graph paper were in black biro, but colour was soon introduced to his work. Islamic and North African decorative elements have always been present in his densely patterned drawings, and the imagery bears a resemblance, albeit unconscious, to prayer mats." From the exhibition British Outsider Art at Halle Saint Pierre, Paris.
