DEVENDRA BANHART: I LEFT MY NOODLE ON RAMEN STREET. Antony et al. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2015. 192 pp. with 219 ills. (175 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 2014-958073 ISBN 9783791349084 In English.
Publisher's description: As eclectic, whimsical, and esoteric as his music, this collection of drawings, paintings, and mixed media pieces by Devendra Banhart confirms his status as one of today's most imaginative and accomplished artists. With a growing reputation as a visual artist, indie-rock star Devendra Banhart moves as effortlessly between genres as he does between musical instruments. In fact, Banhart trained as a visual artist before making a name in the music world. He draws daily and creates the illustrations for his albums, and this book reveals that his visual creations are as sophisticated as his music, and worthy of attention. Banhart draws inspiration from artists such as Henry Darger, Paul Klee, and Cy Twombly, but his work clearly reflects a 21st century aesthetic that is at once self-effacing and sharp-witted. Featuring a cross-section of his best work from the last decade, this collection is presented as a kind of "idea book"--including Banhart's own commentary and musings as well as photographs and other ephemera, an essay by renowned art dealer Jeffrey Deitch, and an interview with curator Diego Cortez. The result is a multi-dimensional portrait of a talented artist and an exciting glimpse into his creative process.
