I like this guy – inspite of the faux-Medieval primitivism. He’s like your weird uncle who paints whatever crap he dreamt about the night before.

You know, I gotta thing about primitivism. If you’re an actual caveman from 40,000 years ago, hey, go for it. But show me a "primitive" clay pot in a modern art gallery and I just want to fill it up with bile. That’s the best you can do? Or those paintings that look like they were done by five year olds? Please… Go to art school and figure it out.

I’m OK with the primitive abstract. I’ll be the first in line for color and texture mashups. But deliberate technical infantility is not endearing. It’s repulsive.
