Art Blogging: Niagara Detroit

Niagara Detroit (1956- ) is an American lowbrow artist. She originally started in music as the frontperson for the 80s punk band Destroy All Monsters. Her initial forays into the visual arts were in cover art, where Detroit established her motif of dangerous, sultry women. Her first gallery exhibit in 1996 was appropriately titled "All Men Are Cremated Equal". Are these works unsophisticated? Detroit said "I don’t care about making art that only talks to other artists."

Ahh, so romantic. Takes me back to the days when my wife and I were dating.
