The Spiritual Journey Of Forrest Prince

Self-taught artist is divinely inspired.

Houston artist Forrest Prince’s work has been exhibited at the Menil Collection, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and the Station Museum, but he never intended to be an artist. 

Prince says that once he found God, he made it his mission to “wake people up” with religious-inspired works of art. This self-effacing artist makes works that are mysterious, controversial and thought-provoking.

This story is from the July 10 episode of Arts InSight, which airs Thursdays at 7pm on TV 8.
