In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world, learning their craft through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation.
