Brian Wilson. An Art Book - This book has not been authorised by Brian Wilson or the Beach Boys
In a work that is not entirely an art book nor entirely a biography, Alex Farquharson collects essays from contemporary artists and art writers to create a linear perspective on the life and work of Brian Wilson, the creative force behind The Beach Boys. Its pages also serve as a musee imaginaire of works from the 1960s to today by twenty-six artists, mostly from Los Angeles, that echoes the trajectory of Wilson's work and the milieu it so uniquely evokes. With contributions solely from 'amateur enthusiasts' of rock music, Brian Wilson: An Art Book, leaves behind any critical analysis, but translates the voice of one art form to another, highlighting the interrelationships between art, music, and life.
