Jean Dubuffet at the S|2 in New York

french artist jean dubuffet

The Jean Dubuffet exhibition at Sotheby’s S|2 gallery in New York finishes up in the next few days. It’s a nice little summary of the artist’s work from the early days through to his last works. The art brut daddio is definitely one of my top ten all time favorite artists. If I was a billionaire I would walk through this exhibition with a shopping cart and come out the other end with it full! ;-)

These little beauties would be on my shopping list..

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.
