I'm a big fan of Art Brut, the true
as the artistic vision shown is the product of a mind 'degenerated' by mental illness. What has always amazed me about Art Brut works is the depth of imagination and the way this vision is clearly communicated to the viewer despite the artist's lack of formal training. Neurotypical art world charlatans can only seek to imitate the natural rawness and naiveté of Art Brut works in a pitiful attempt at authenticity, especially as formal skill has become something to downplay in the contemporary art scene. Simply compare any works from the
Art Brut museum
to a neo-primitivist painter like Basquiat.
