Kentucky-born outsider artist John Tweddle moved to New York in 1969. His early works explore ideas of class and art, his identity as a Southerner, and his era's culture, commonly depicting naked women, trucks, and peace signs. Strongly colored and patterned with recurring motifs like dollar signs and crosshatching, Tweddle's folkloric, naive paintings, and drawings were collected by influential art advocate Robert Scull, among the first to recognize artists such as Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist.
