Felix Virgous

Felix Virgous, a Memphis artist discovered by Lonnie Holley, painted for some years during the 1990s. He used found pieces of wall paneling, and would wrap the edges in masking tape before executing the images, which were typically based on Biblical subjects. His current status/whereabouts are unknown, though it is believed that he is no longer making art.
