Art Brut, Outsider Art.

I have always been an avid follower of Outsider Art or Art Brut. Outsider art, if you are wondering is the art of self taught artists who have no formal training, the often strange imagery, immediacy and vitality of this type of work, for me, expresses raw creativity and inner energy which I find very interesting. The expression Art Brut (raw art) was created by the french artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
These images are from various contemporary outsider artists across the globe.

'Just missed the Pass'  Artist Micheal Delgado.

'Observe your Choices' Micheal Delgado.
Micheal Delgado is an artist who is originally from Senegal, he now lives in the USA.

Artist Ian Pyper, UK

Ian Pypers work takes doodling to a whole new place.

The wonderful work of Ann Irwin.

 Artist Alexandra Huber from Germany.

'Ladybug and Black man' Alexandra Huber.

'Magic Place' Alexandra Huber.
Magical work from this artist.

To see more of this type of work

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do.
