The term “outsider art” refers to self-taught or naive artists who have little or no contact with the mainstream art world.
Outsiders come from all walks of life, from all cultures, from all age groups.
Outsider art often depicts extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.
But aren’t we all outsiders? Italian writer Luciano De Crescendo wrote, We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
And as prolific angel painter Howard Finster said, When we all get together what a day that shall be.
Peace on earth, 2016.
