What Is Blotter Art?

Blotter Art is one of the world’s most important (and misunderstood) forms of folk art. Blotter Art started out as the artwork on the paper that drug dealers used to distribute LSD. The various designs were used as a sort of calling card to distinguish a particular brand. After some time, art lovers began to understand the value of this historical art form and collect and preserve the unsaturated artwork.
