Our Artists

The artists of Coalition Ingenu have been generally precluded from formal training or significant exposure to fine art by circumstances of extreme poverty or mental illness. But the inaccessibility of education forces them to draw upon the more creative method of learning by visualization, experimentation and adjustment. Although they may not be regarded as masters of skill and technique, they deserve recognition, by virtue of their independence from academic training, as masters of the creative process and purveyors of inviolate imagination.
