Outsider and naive art

Naive art in painting

Naive art is a style of creativity of talented people who for some reason have not gotten professional art education. This notion is often used as a synonym for the primitive art style. These are close directions in painting. The only difference is that artists of the «primitive» art style have a professional art education. Variants of naive art are very diverse, but its common features can be clearly distinguished: freshness, unusual spirituality of the world perception, imitation of professional "big" styles - on the verge of mugging.

Artists of naive art style often take their plots from the surrounding them life, folklore, religious mythology or their own imagination. It is easier for them than for many professional artists to make a spontaneous, intuitive not hampered by cultural and social rules and prohibitions creativeness. As a result, original, surprisingly pure, poetic and lofty artistic worlds appear. In these worlds, there is a somewhat ideal, naive harmony between the nature and man.

Naive art combines the original brightness of figurative imagination, the freshness and sincerity of the world perception with the lack of professional skills in drawing, painting, composition, modeling, etc. Naive art, as a rule, is spiritually optimistic, life affirming, multifaceted and diverse, has a rather high aesthetic significance. Naive art is touching and easy, however it is incredibly sincere.

Outsider art is one of the most honest and sincere trends in art.
Artists-outsiders have the entire emotions primary, there are no second, third fourth, and there is only one emotion and the most important. There is no difference what way and with what kind of tools to implement their own, unusual, beyond the «normal» vision. It can be a stone, a tin can of a drink, an iron rod or children's tights. If this material allows the artist to express his message, he uses it not thinking about its origin. And it will be a masterpiece, albeit original, for an amateur, but a masterpiece. Outsiders are free not only in the choice of materials, but also in the choice of techniques to perform their paintric art.
