My treat for you today is a small collage of 3 dimensional follies by Sal Kapunan, a taoist hillbilly artist. Sal lives in the Grand Boulevard bungalow neighborhood adjacent to King Street in Boone. Just about as long as I can remember, Sal has decorated his yard, house, roof, wife and even the Appalachian Cultural Museum with his pumped up versions of whirly-gig yard art. Yes, he has a book which investigates most of his individual work, but this link takes you to a brief, yet thorough description of his kooky, whacked out art--and I mean that in the most delightful way. As I followed down his garden path today, I was blatantly aware I was trespassing, but only because his eye candy was too difficult to refuse. As I photographed his works I thought to myself, "This is a man who likes to see other people smile." I know it made me.
