Art movements don't come around very often. It's been 40 years since the Hairy Who put Chicago on the art-world map. Now there's a new art movement, complete with a manifesto full of bluster and pseudo-Marxist rhetoric.
Micromentalists reject the idea of monumental art in museums and commercial galleries. They think art should be small and affordable but still challenging, and hanging in everyone's home. They reject the idea that only the rich can afford good art.
Micromentalists founder Patrick W. Welch, best known for his "miniature hate paintings," has assembled an extraordinary group of like-minded artists to launch the movement.
Other featured artists include Smoov Brainz, Grave Dubz, Eric Doeringer, Paul Nudd, Friese Undine, Eric Wenzel, Patrick W. Welch, Erling Sjovold, James Peterson and Steve Keene.
