What is Art Brut?
Art Brut, also known as Outsider Art, refers to artworks created by self-taught individuals or those outside the established art world. It encompasses art created by children, psychiatric patients, and individuals with disabilities or unconventional backgrounds. Art Brut often showcases raw, unfiltered expressions of the artist's inner world, free from the constraints of traditional artistic conventions. The movement values authenticity, originality, and the creative potential found in marginalized or unconventional contexts. Art Brut challenges established notions of artistic skill and expertise, emphasizing the universal human capacity for artistic expression.
