Blair Thuman Art

BLAIR THURMAN (USA, B. 1961)

Blair Thurman was born in New Orleans in 1961. Describing his practice as less-than painting, meaning something very simple that leads you to the next thing. Thurman's works address how to create art when the great painters had already done almost everything at least once (Blair Thurman, interview with Alain Elkann, 2018). He is best known for his neon works and his abstract paintings that appropriate American car culture, including references to model cars, motor speedways, race car decals and car lacquer paint. Thurman lists Andy Warhol, John Wesley, Steve Parrino, Nam June Paik, Carl Andre and Ed Kienholz as artistic influences, the structure of Horton Hears a Hoo-Hoo particularly resembles a Lee Bontecou sculpture. Its title directly references the Dr. Seuss children's book Horton Hears a Who.
