We live in times of unlimited choice, heady technological innovation and increasingly regular paradigm shifts – not to mention visual vertigo from the dizzying data dump that is the Internet. But for every artist who breathes in the zeitgeist there are also others who carve out curious niches of their own, out of sync with his or her peers. I have a feeling that if I called him old fashioned and unfashionable, Max Lieberman would not be totally unhappy. He cites Henri Rousseau and the obscure Georgian itinerant artist Nikos Pirasmani as influences – two classic naïve painters; and says that he often finds more merit in the work of children than the works of professional artists. He mentions friends Newell Harry and Jumaadi as other influences.
