I am an outsider artist. I am self taught and use unusual materials in my work such as sheet rock and neon paint. My work is for me a spiritual path as I am now the artist called Billy the Kid Neon/Numen, formerly known simply as Billy the Kid Neon. I became an artist when I was "Richard Dreyfussed" (as in Close Encounters of the Third Kind) at Home Depot one day. I bought an 8' x 4' piece of sheet rock and, with a neighboor's help, I set it on two saw horses. In a trance i did my first piece appropriately called "Future Numen". This solitary phase in my work culminated in my magnum opus "Yu Must Squeeze" - a 7000 c.ft. installation.
Now I employ "fine" artists in my work and I think it is way better - not so rough and more accessible. My art is now for sale and hopefully, placable. Thanks for your kind attention....LUV AND PEACE....BILLY
