Enter the surreal, diverse, self-styled madcap universe of Noel Fielding, comedian extraordinaire (Mighty Boosh) and the maddest man on TV. Originally trained at art college, this collection represents some of his superbly original paintings, drawing, thoughts, scribbles, portraits, designs, defacing’s and much more. Essential for both fans and anyone else.
I love Noel Fielding, that androgynous bird of prey! He is, as the title of his book suggests, a ‘Madcap Genius’. I think the reason why I love Noel Fielding is that he is so very silly. He takes his stories or his characters to places that you would never think that they could go to. This is definitely the vibe that you get when you look at his book of art The Scribblings of a Madcap Genius. It is crazy, silly and to some extent very serious. You can see that Fielding takes his talent seriously and if I was being a bit pretentious I would say that his work is a reflection of postmodern society but since I don’t have a clue about art, I won’t.
Either way, if you like Noel Fielding you will like this book.
