A revised edition of the tell-all biography of the businessman turned outsider artist

In this no-holds-barred biography of controversial artist Matt Lamb, Richard Speer takes readers on an all-access tour of Lamb's life and times. With true insider access that includes interviews with family and friends and Lamb's own personal archives, the book offers a massively compelling look at the artist's life. The successful millionaire CEO of a family business, Lamb turned away from business and toward painting as a response to a diagnosis of grave illness. Whether that diagnosis was accurate or not, it was the basis for a massive personal transformation, from wealthy but little-known businessman to an artist hailed as the heir of Pablo Picasso. Thumbing his nose at the art establishment that dismissed his work and wealth as the antithesis of starving-artist chic, Lamb dedicated his work to world peace and redefined the art world in the process.

  • Revised to cover the years leading up to the artist's death in early 2012
  • Tells the story of a truly unique character who succeed spectacularly in the wildly different worlds of business and art
  • This book offers an insider's look at the art world's ultimate "outside insider"

For those who relish tales of larger-than-life personalities who break the mold, Matt Lamb: The Art of Success is a thrilling and enlightening biography of an unforgettable personality.
