What is Naïve Art?

By Megan George

About this Curation

Throw the rule book out the window: the increasingly popular form of naïve art means turning away from tradition and embracing instinct. Also known as primitivism, naïve art is a manifestation of raw creativity, characterised by a seemingly simplistic approach that is uninhibited and intuitive to composition and ideas. Often described as childlike, naïve paintings are a window into our raw emotions and ideas. Discover some of the top artists working in this style in this curation of fascinating, raw artworks.
