Fauxbrow (pronounced fo-brow) is a term amalgamated from the newbrow art movement of today and the fauve
painting movement of one hundred years ago. Both movements have in common a forward-looking idealism
and a tendency toward revolutionary style. Both movements have at their center a respect for nature
and a distrust for the prevailing trends of crass commercialism.
Fauxbrow is inspired by an endless barrage of miraculous phenomenon, including:
the independent spirit and experimental theatricality
of Orson Welles ca. 1930s-40s, Lenny Bruce ca. 1960s, Lester Bangs ca. 1970s.
the pure playfulness and ingenious musicality of Ted Geisel
the expansive social concern and incisive wit of Allen Ginsberg ca. 1955
the delivery of Ted Abernathy's sinkerball ca. 1970s
an Emersonian regard for transcendant nature
the feeling of boundless dream energy propagated by Emily Dickinson, Rod Serling, Jackson Pollock
the irreverence, wit and original flair of British TV ca. 1960s - Secret Agent, The Avengers, Monty Python
Charles Beaudelaire, Herman Hesse, Ambrose Bierce, Fred Nietzsche, Richard Dyer-Bennet, Pablo Neruda, the timeless western shamanism of Bukowski & Bob Dylan
