Art Galleries in London - Art Gallery Information Art R Crumb: Art and Beauty Robert Crumb is the world’s most famous underground cartoonist. So much so that the 72-year-old doesn’t really count as ‘underground’ any more, having long ago left the countercultural ‘comix’ scene and moved into the realm of art galleries. Along the way, his subject matter has expanded too, from his original, acid-fried strips of the 1960s, through documentary forays into the lives of obscure blues musicians and Kafka, to his recent magisterial, comic-book version of the Book of Genesis. One aspect that hasn’t changed much over time, though, is his sexual fantasies.

Swings: Los Angeles Jeff installed swings in San Francisco, in the Marshall Islands, Panama and across Los Angeles, thanks to a grant from The Awesome Foundation. It’s a universal message. An appeal to celebrate the passions of our youth, to give in to simplistic urges, but mostly, to remind people of the difference a smile can make in their day and the infectious effect that smile has on those they encounter. Visit to be a part of ther next swings project.
