The 2013 documentary Robert Williams: Mr. Bitchin’ provides a lively look at the life and career of the renowned American underground artist and cartoonist Robert Williams, whose counter-culture artwork often features images of naked women, death, destruction, booze and clowns.
In the early 1960s, emerging artist Williams was confronted with trendy abstraction and superficial pop art. Schooled in the Hot Rod Culture of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Von Dutch, he emerged as a leader in the Underground Comic revolution along with R. Crumb, contributing regularly to Zap Comix. His antisocial paintings of an alternative reality were marginalized by the art world for decades although he became a hero of sorts for underground artists. His notoriety exploded when his painting Appetite for Destruction was used (and much vilified) as the cover for that 1987 Guns n’ Roses album.
