Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Ricky - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from #losangeles in the form of the glorious Max Neutra. I became aware of Max Neutra about seven years ago when I saw a video of him painting a big ol’ stack of gnarled faces on #youtube . His awesome #gonzo style quickly made him one of my favourite artists and I wanted to kick off this feature with his work. Now, although it looks like he’s been doing this for 237 years, it was an epiphany that convinced him to become a full time artist. Max decided to stick it to the man one day when he was working as an audio video installation guy and found himself waiting in line for a cup of coffee. He had a stern word with himself and said “I ain’t foolin’ nobody son - I need to go paint!” and since then he’s been smashing the place up with all kinds of awesomeness. If you ain’t followin’ Max, go check him out - he’s up to all kinds of funk!
