Entitled l.l. and signed and dated l.r. "11.23.17". P-Nut, born and raised in Charleston, S.C., has seen the city through devastating lows and unbelievable highs with his style of Lowcountry Love. His paintings, on cardboard and canvas, document Charleston’s history. Some paintings are accompanied by his poems. At 16, he began writing poems on napkins at popular Ansonborough watering holes like Cumberland’s Bar and Horse & Court. He captured people instantly with his humor and insight and soon enough, had visitors stopping by the bars just to get a poem from the “Lowcountry Poet.” After a few memorable years in New York, rubbing shoulders with famous comedians and performing some of his own stand-up comedy, P-Nut returned to Charleston to care for his mother. In 2017, he launched a new career in the visual arts. His folk-napkin poetry seamlessly translates into narrative paintings full of spontaneity and life. Porgy Poem," Porgy Charlston Born, When times were hard, But he never rest he, Wanted to the the best, He gamble and stole, Sold moonshine and, With no legs see was, One of a kind and thats, Why he shine." Acrylic on canvas. Frame: 29" x 24", sight: 20" x 14". Good condition, minor loss to frame finish.
