WALLACE "KNOX" WILKINSON

Although Wilkinson is mentally challenged, he is an artist of rich vision and strong sentimentality. His vibrant artworks are popular with collectors of Outsider art; they have been described as expressing "the warmth, vitality and simplicity that are basic qualities of the author… and express the innermost secrets of the human heart."

Wilkinson explains that he depicts women with elaborate clothes and hairdos because they are fun to draw; some look happy, but some appear rather unpleasant.
