If you are ever lacklustre and lazy about getting into the studio, Beautiful Losers will almost definitely give you the kick you need to get moving. Originally curated by Aaron Rose as an exhibition at the Contemporary Art Center in Ohio, Cincinnati (which then toured worldwide), and expanded into an art book and documentary film; Beautiful Losers explores the creative spirit of a collective of like-minded artists whose work stems from the DIY movement. Artists including Mike Mills, Aaron Rose, Chris Johansen, Geoff McFetridge, Steve Powers and Barry McGee all discuss their work with a level fervour that makes you want to rush back to your studio and never leave. 

The Beautiful Losers book is available here, and the trailer for the Beautiful Losers documentary can be found here
