Artist Statement: My art speaks for itself. If it speaks to you, my statement is superfluous. If my art doesn’t speak to you, then you won’t read it anyway.
Arthur J. Oaks
Oaks claims that he is an MFA (Mother Fucking Artist) from the University of Hard Knocks. After clashing with professors in art schools he studied privately with various artists, from books, and from devouring as much art as he could swallow. And some he couldn’t. Oaks worked in various highly disciplined art fields before chucking it all for the freedom of self-expression and abstraction.
Arthur describes his process, “I don’t consciously make abstracts, they just appear as if by magic while I am working in my studio.”
