Creations From the Obscure

  • Images flowing from a blank slate uncolored by formal instruction
  • 42 outsider artists from Japan showcased at a French art gallery
  • Award winning - New York Festival 2019 and others

Self-taught artists are claiming respect and recognition forthemselves and their work. Marie Suzuki is one such person, a creator of what has come to be known as art brut, made by artists who have learned on their own. She cultivates her skills primarily to please herself. Nevertheless, others have taken notice. The program features an exhibition of Japanese art brut in Nantes, France, including that of Suzuki. Tune in to see how boundless imagination turns into expression beyond words.
