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.
