Naive Art

Radi Nedelchev - Naive ArtArtists rejected for lacking professional training by the sophisticated societies referred to their artworks as the Naive or Outsider. The artists under this style of art shared the same passion and intense as other trained artists, the only difference was that they worked for their art without the formal learning and trainings. The artwork produced by these artists was highly detailed in images, used bright and strong colors and were without perspective. Usually the images looked like they were floating in space creating illusions of fantasy. The Naive Art was not concerned with social structures, traditions and correctness of politics in their expressions in their work.

This kind of art had proven to be most important for its ability to endure the changing styles of art around it for many decades. It maintained its identity after all the years it had been around. All the artists of Naive Art worldwide followed the oversimplification of the artworks; it was childlike possessing the identity of the style.

The characteristics found in the Naive Art were very unfitting as compared to the formal painting qualities. It showed difficulties with drawing and perspective; however, it resulted to something awkwardly charming for the strong pattern of unrefined colors. It was refreshing for the viewers because of its lack of subtlety. It became a recognized and popular style with all its qualities. Pseudo-naive and faux-naïve were other names coined for this style.
