New Works by Mr. Hooper

New Works by Mr. Hooper at Garde Rail Gallery in Seattle, WA. "...Tim "Mr Hooper" Hooper is from Nashville, TN, and his work is heavily influenced by American folk art, outsider art, graffiti and tattoo art. Mr. Hooper's art is an amalgamation of pop icons, cartoon characters, dirty streets and urban decay. The pieces are usually detailed narratives interlaced with Hooper's singular wit and unique style. While Mr. Hooper's art is sometimes categorized as folk or outsider art, we prefer to call it Pop Folk, as Mr Hooper is one of a handful of young Southern (mostly) self-taught artists working in this exciting new sub-genre."
