:: Mark McCloud’s Blotter Art ::

leave a comment »

Currently at Ever Gold Gallery, infamous acid blotter art historian/collector Mark McCloud has an exhibit running that features some truly unique pieces of the psychedelic sub-culture. Of course the pieces at Ever Gold are un-dipped, but the graphics and pieces themselves are surely interesting to see. There is even a perforating machine.

Mark McCloud is officially the Father of Blotter Art. He has been collecting blotter paper art for over 30 years, he has been twice busted, and twice acquitted. He unequivocally has the largest and most diverse collection of blotter paper in the world.

You can see more of the Ever Gold Gallery pics here, and another site here has a lengthy story (with more amazing pictures) about his early 2000 bust, the trial, and clean-up after-math of where the government had hoped they had their hands on a major LSD distributor, and not some guy with 33,000 pieces of perforated art sitting in his basement & attic.
