HOWARD ARKLEY - IN THE PANTHEON.

I first encountered a Howard Arkley painting at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney about 5 years ago. I never forgot it. I heard more about him as his fame increased. But only now, after his death, am I making this web page, joining the stampede of people celebrating yet another dead artist: the Elvis syndrome. Still, I don't feel bad about jumping on the bandwagon. His work is so good that nothing should stop it being disseminated.

All I am really doing here is making a few images available on the web, some of them leeched from other sites, others scanned from the book "Spray-the Work of Howard Arkley". For more informed discussion about who Arkley was, follow the relevant links below.
