Lowbrow Wave on a Highbrow Shore

Caleb Neelon is an established authority when it comes to lowbrow art. As a writer for Juxtapoz and Swindle magazines, the painter is accustomed to voicing his well-informed opinions about matter. The Boston Globe recently interviewed Caleb in the article “Lowbrow Art on the Highbrow Shore,” addressing East vs. West Coast receptions of the underground art movement.

“California is its spiritual home,” Neelon says of the movement. “The market, and the people in California, are more forward thinking than on the East Coast, and certainly in Boston.” Trying to talk with Bostonians about lowbrow art, a frustrated Neelon adds, “is like talking to my parents.”
