Top Definition
A expression used to descrive a very smart/intellegent/talented person who doesn't manage to reach success, and therefore has to live in poverty.

The term is created from a distortion of name of the great fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes.
-Wow, this piano player is really good!
-Yes, I know, this is Glarinov. He is very talented, but no music experts eppreciate his talent, so he has to live as a Sherlock Homeless.
