Went to the Francis Bacon show at TATE BRITAIN. Decorator, self taught artist, and petty thief! Atheist and Homosexual! He met his muse and lover when he caught him breaking into his studio.
I think Atilla Lucas and Graham Gilmore find inspiration in his work. The archival studio photos of Mr. Bacon remind me of the way Artist Derik Root works.
