Dwight Mackintosh

1906 (Hayward, CA) – 1999 (Berkeley, CA)

Identified by the well-known art historian John McGregor as a great American Outsider Artist, Dwight Mackintosh began making artwork late in life and after spending over fifty-five years in institutions. He lost little time in making up for the late start, and generated multitudes of drawings, paintings, prints and ceramics during his career at Creative Growth. Dwight’s work is characterized by repetitive flowing text and “x-ray” views of loosely drawn, yet tightly composed male figures; his work also includes trains, buses, angels, and an idiosyncratic documentation illustrating ‘before and after’ views of tonsillectomy surgery. Mackintosh’s work has been exhibited internationally and most recently at ABCD Collection, Paris and Gavin Brown’s enterprise, New York, and Collection l’Art Brut, Lausanne.
