In his cluttered basement studio, Rex Bandy dabs evenly-sized petals onto a small portrait of blooming flowers. Bandy said he started painting the walls of clubs and tents during his service in the Korean War, after procuring some cheap paints and materials on the local black market. “We were stuck in this God forsaken country, 40 degrees below zero, winds 40 miles an hour,” Bandy recalled. “Morale was bad, food was bad, everything was bad, and I just started to do this thing.”
Rex Bandy spends much of his time in a basement apartment in his son’s house. Although he doesn’t profess to know what folk art is, he says he does believe that real art “doesn’t belong to dictators, generals (or) CEOs of corporations. In the United States, we’ve had a great history of art from ordinary people.”
Bandy’s artwork often uses vivid colors.
