About naive art: Naive art is characterized by a childlike simplicity. It is a gross oversimplification to assume that Naive art is created by people with little or no formal art training. The term naive art presumes the existence of an academy and of a generally accepted educated manner of art creation, most often painting. In practice, however, there are schools of naive artists. Over time it has become an acceptable style. The characteristics of naive art are an awkward relationship to the formal qualities of painting. Difficulties with drawing and perspective that result in a charmingly awkward and often refreshing vision, strong use of pattern, unrefined color, and simplicity rather than subtlety are all supposed markers of naive art. In naive art we find a refreshing innocence and the charming use of bright colors, child-like perspective and idiosyncratic scale. Naive art portrays simple, easily-understandable and often idealized scenes of everyday life. The naive artist treats us to a uniquely literal, yet extremely personal and coherent, vision of what the world was, is or should be. It offers us, often in painstaking detail, a timeless and optimistic depiction of an ordinary occurrence or current event, a special ceremony or daily activity. The naive painting bustles with color and excitement, brims with wry humor and candor, bubbles with unbridled empathy and love. CLICK
