1986 Collectors Edition Poster Featuring Upside Down Art By Masg Artist L R Emerson II
L R Emerson II
Painting - Airbrush On Illustration Board With Pen And Ink
American artist, designer and inventor L. R. Emerson II may be considered the Thomas Edison of art yet is equally regarded among the world’s most unusual artists.
L. R. Emerson II may also be one of the most prolific artists the world has ever witnessed. Since 1983, has been personally compelled to develop and express through multi-directional art.
L. R. Emerson II is best known as the leading artist of the Upside-Down Art Movement or Masg Art movement.
L. R. Emerson II is credited with starting an international shift and movement in art across the planet and today Museums and Art Text publishers and Art Educators are grappling with Emerson’s influence on modern design and artmaking. Because of Emerson, art education, art conservators, collectors, as well as gallery and museum settings must accommodate the “two-view” or multi-directional composition pioneered by L. R. Emerson II.
Emerson never intended to become a household name in artmaking and the evidence of his effort to avoid “selling out” is firstly, his diligent efforts to make art that was intentionally against the common trends and secondly to keep his unique style secret from the world at large for two decades.
Recently, however after Emerson decidedly released some of his work, after keeping it suppressed since the 1980’s renowned artist Georg Baselitz called L. R. Emerson's art"...inspiring."
Baselitz’ own art has sold for in excess of $4.2 million dollars at recent auction.
