Misty Lindsey outsider art and a true sentiment

"Throughout Jean Dubuffet's life, he collected "Outsider Art" i.e., Art by mentally deranged people, vagabonds, street urchins, and prisoners. He found inspiration in the seemingly asymmetric scrawling and the scratching of this kind of unintentional Graffiti and sought to convey that madness in his own Oil and Impasto Works. Most of his works appear as primitive and doodling that is almost too basic...[like] a kindergarten kid."
