bill traylor

bill traylor is my favorite folk/outsider artist. born into slavery and unable to read or write, he started making art at the age of 83. he slept on the floor in the back of a funeral parlor and spent his days on the street in downtown montgomery, alabama. once he started making his art, he did so full time, all day every day. it just came pouring out.
