Enamel house paint on cardboard
Bostic, known as the “Cardboard Man,” was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, and worked for nearly twenty years at Derst Baking Company there. Originally painting just in the evenings, he created Old and New Testament narratives by applying house paint to recycled cardboard. The illustrated family Bible from his childhood often provides a major source of inspiration for his bold compositions. Bostic’s images are in the collections of the American Folk Art Museum and the High Museum of Art.
