His story is one shrouded in mystery, almost lost forever, intertwined with secret societies, hidden codes, otherworldly theories and seemingly impossible inventions before his time. Unseen for decades and salvaged by a junk dealer in the 1960s from a trash heap outside a house in Texas, his entire body of work would later go on to marvel the intellectual world. But during his lifetime, Charles Dellschau had only been known as the grouchy local butcher.

In 1969, used furniture dealer Fred Washington bought 12 large discarded notebooks  from a garbage collector, where they found a new home in his warehouse under a pile of dusty carpets. In 1969, art history student, Mary Jane Victor, was scouring through his bazaar of castaways when she came upon the mysterious works of a certain Charles Dellschau. Inside the scrapbooks she discovered a remarkable collection of strange watercolours and collage pieces. More than 2,500 intricate drawings of flying machines alongside cryptic newspaper clippings filled the pages, crudely sewn together with shoelaces and thread.

Victor immediately notified the Art Director of Rice University, Dominique de Menil, Houston’s leading fine art patron, who snapped up four of the books for $1,500 and promptly put on an exhibition at the university entitled, “Flight”. Charles Dellschau, a Prussian immigrant had finally been discovered, nearly 50 years after his death in 1923.

Re: Found in a Junk Shop: Secrets of an Undiscovered Visionary Artist

It sort of reminds me of some of Paul Laffoley's work. Speaking of Paul.. I'm friends with someone who helps him out with his web stuff & on his last visit was able to find Paul's X-ray, which he allowed him to share.. Paul's got something in his head, yo va

Here's one of his (many) works that seems similar to the artist mentioned in the original post.

Re: Found in a Junk Shop: Secrets of an Undiscovered Visionary Artist

Oh & check out this guy's work & the story behind it.. found the article from the same site the first one i found at..

http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/10/0 … her-world/

'Are we looking at a Madman’s Doodles or Messages from another World?'

By the time he was out of primary school, Augustin Lesage was sent to work deep in the coal mines of France, which to be fair, would probably be enough to render anyone mad. In 1911, when he was 35 years-old, Lesage claimed he heard a voice speak to him in the darkness of the mine and tell him, “One day you will be a painter”. The only contact he had ever at with the arts at that point was a visit to a museum once during his military service. The experience prompted him to explore communication with the spiritual world, and within a year of his first unexplained encounter, Augustin was hearing more voices, this time specifically telling him what to paint, what art supplies to buy and conveniently, where to find them.

Man i've seen the stuff too, so has my son. My son's drawn out complete diagrams & blue prints of ships with cloaking devices on them since he was uh.. about 4. Not sure if either of us have any 'chips' though.. other than chocolate chip cookies tongue I think it's more likely a telepathy thing with us, & some other visionary artists. Tom Montalk & i had discussed this a couple months ago & how to not let it over-run you, not become their 'puppet' so to speak. A lot of these people live very poorly, get a ton of ridicule & deemed as 'nuts;. Almost like those angel-incarnate devotee types.. messengers who are appreciated but usually too late, unfortunately.

I think one aspect that distinguishes those messages from the what the voices say to the mentally ill.  If you're "nuts" the voices are usually suggesting ideas that are harmful to oneself or others.  I always wonder why they never question that, but I guess it's because they're mentally ill.  I would love to have a voice guiding me to be an artist!
