A new book collecting the thoughts and art of North East outsider artist Sam Anthony Mudd is getting a launch at Baltic Kitchen on Saturday 3rd December.
The book serves as a deep dive into work which is an expression of what it’s like to be an artist on the autistic spectrum. The work within is honest, and as captivating as it is challenging. Aiming to provide a dichotomy which makes you smile and cry in the same swift moment, it’s ambitious from Mudd to make You Need This a bold statement that should prove an engaging piece of outsider art. Using his own mental health issues at the core of his work, Mudd manages to communicate interesting ideas through his predominantly digital art, and long may he continue to do so.
