The Blue Truck – Purvis Young

Purvis Young has been recognized as one of the masters of this
broadly defined nonacademic genre of ‘outsider art’. His work possesses a
singularly raw form of aesthetic power and through the decades he has
developed an astounding  oeuvre, out of which the owner was able to acquire a
range of true highlights, in early 1997, while he visited Miami.

The above painting features one of Purvis Young’s favorite subjects: Trucks

In a very expressive fashion he paints this blue truck, as if it is not a solid mass of metal, but rather a breathing life mass rolling into an either urban environment still under construction or a cemetery of destroyed high rises in a dystopian world. We guess it’s up to the viewer to decide.
