De Forest, Roy (1930 - )

Roy De forest is one of the preeminent artists of the California Bay Area. Usually associated with the "Funk" art movement, De Forest with appealing irreverence, makes painting, drawings and sculpture of a wild world of weird humans and amazing beady-eyed dogs. "For me, one of the most beautiful things about art is that is one of the last strongholds of magic. It is one of the few areas of human activity in which it is possible to do something for which you would be otherwise locked up or incarcerated, especially if you were a politician and did what you can do in a painting."

De Forest has made two prints at Shark's; his first a woodcut, "Van Gogh in the Tropics" in 1999 and recently "Ode to Rin Tin Tin", a lithograph, woodcut and pochoir.

De Forest was an influential teacher at the University of California/Davis and has exhibited his work worldwide, in numerous solo and group shows. His work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and many others.   12/7/2005
