Straiph Wilson

“Chthonic Art”.

Straiph Wilson is a self-taught contemporary Scottish artist creating art independently of the art world canon. He represents a new generations of self-taught artists whose work remains relatively obscure but accessible. His current practice focuses on what is commonly called Art Brut, Outsider, or non-mainstream. Wilson is interested in the relationship between ritual and power within an evolutionary time-frame and creating religious objects from these ideas. His art practice attempts to go beyond or behind customary established dogma, in order to satisfy a need which certain individuals have to experience the intersection between science, religion and belief.
