Nick Mann aka Doodles’ show Astral Rise at Gallery Heist in San Francisco. You see a lot of this kind of eclectic, psychedelic, neo-folk art coming out of the Bay Area, and although it’s not my absolute favorite genre I do think the art is worth its while.
His travels have a direct relationship with his artistic practice, as though his artwork is documentation of the spiritual and physical experiences he has while traveling. His lifestyle is intertwined with his art making, obscuring the lines between both. This convergence of lifestyle and practice has placed Mann into the contemporary folk-art movement. – Gallery Heist
