Biography

Jean Philippe Arthur Dubuffet, a French painter and sculptor, is one of the most important artists of the Post-War generation. Dubuffet’s technique embraced what he referred to as “low-art” and demonstrated an instinctual—almost sub-conscious—approach to image making. Bold colors, emotive line-work, and an aggressive naïveté define his oeuvre and his contributions to the Art Brut movement. Often painting in thick impasto and emphasizing the material as an end rather than a means, Dubuffet’s work blurs the line between painting and sculpture. His distorted portraits contain an emotional immediacy, preferring the primordial archetype to an individualized subject. In addition to paintings, Dubuffet created drawings, graphics, sculptures, and assemblages of found objects.
