Hips - Butch Anthony

  • This mixed media piece on board is approximately 15.75"x11.75".

  • Butch Anthony from Seale, AL is an artist, picker, and builder of things. “I can weld steel, mix concrete, paint, throw clay, bend wire, sew cloth, and hammer a nail. Mix all these together and you got Intertwangleism. Inter, meaning to mix,” he said. “And twang, a distinct way of speaking. If I make up my own ‘ism,’ no one can say anything or tell me I’m doing it wrong.”


    Les Blank, the documentarian with an appetite for American originals, has been filming Mr. Anthony for over 12 years and describes him as “a kind of national treasure.”
