Art Brut Gallery
The gallery was established to promote the art of the excluded. The amateur works of art brut naive painting and sculpture presented in it allow you to discover new and original artists who are outside the main, recognized directions of art. In this way, the gallery influences the current state of art brut, which is unknown, properly appreciated, different from traditional art, and (although it represents a high level) is rarely made available to the public. The gallery helps artists whose images often circulate in an environment assigned to therapy/rehabilitation.
