Biography

American artist nicknamed "Daddy-O" because of his slicked back hair, ’51 Ford hot rod and El Paso style. He helped shape the 1970s Texas Cosmic Cowboy counterculture. A retrospective of his work was exhibited at the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture in the fall of 2009. He is best known for his oversized sculptures of Texas symbols and for experimenting with hand-tinted black-and-white vintage photographs transferred to large photo-emulsion canvases. His 40-foot-long (12 m) Giant Iguana sat on top of the Lone Star Cafe in New York City in 1978.
