NO!art was an independent, anti-establishment art movement that began in 1959 in New York  by Boris Lurie (1924-2008), Stanley Fisher (1926-1980) and Sam Goodman (1919-1967) and through the 1960s it was comprised of approximately 20 artists. The movement was self-described as “a rebellion of the underprivileged” using negation, pessimism and anti-aesthetics as a protest to the “investment machines” of Abstract Expressionism and Pop-Art that dominated the market of the period.
