I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the most interesting people in art mediums to me, and I’ve slowly become obsessed with the thought. I find myself drawn to artists of mystery, artists of bizarre origins, or artists of extreme opinions. I’ve been compiling a list of some of the most interesting to me, and this is what I have so far, in no particular order. Please throw some in if you have any suggestions.
Tom Waits Daniel Johnston Robert Ashley Richard D. James Godspeed You! Black Emperor GG Allin Andy Kaufman Charles Bukowski Hunter S Thompson Nick Drake Burial Stanley Kubrick Christopher Owens Michael Gira Krzysztof Penderecki Alan Lomax Mark Linkous Jamie Stewart Moondog Harmony Korine Flannery O'Connor Larry Clark John Gardner Django Reinhart Vashti Bunyan
The medium I’m least educated in is literature, so I’m hoping some people can suggest any really interesting figures in writing
