American, 1898–1993
Follow

Texas-born Eddie Arning’s drawings of agrarian life and popular iconography constitute a singular contribution to the canon of American outsider art. Arning began drawing as a therapeutic process during his stay in a mental facility, working with Crayola crayons and drawing rudimentary compositions of flat planes and simple figures. He quickly developed as an artist, moving from crayons to oil pastels and embracing complicated and chromatic compositions. Arning’s subject matter expanded to include references to his rural upbringing and popular advertising figures such as Colonel Sanders, continuing a tradition of artists producing Americana imagery. Although Arning had a prolific output in the 1960s, he stopped producing art upon leaving the mental institution in the 1970s.
