Billy the Kid Neon – Numen

"I am an outsider artist. I am self-taught and use unusual materials in my work such as sheetrock and neon paint. My work is for me a spiritual path. I became an artist when I was "Richard Dreyfussed" (as in Close Encounters of the Third Kind) at Home Depot one day and have been at it ever since."

“I am an outsider artist. I am self-taught and use unusual materials in my work such as sheetrock 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 (hehee).

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 sheetrock and, with a neighbor's help, I set it on two sawhorses. 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
