DISTORTION3 (Pr-y / Atlier Yamanami / nude:mm)
This fashion brand produces clothes printed with drawings and paintings of Atelier Yamanami’s artists.
In the 1940s, a French artist, Jean Dubuffet, advocated the idea of “Art Brut,” which literally means “unadulterated raw art.” In the world of art, this term refers to works of art created instinctively from deep within the soul and by people who have never received academic art education (or in other words, who are free from the harmful effects of conventional systematized education).
In Japan, such works of art are often created by people with mental disorders or intellectual disabilities, thus Art Brut is likely to be considered to mean the “art of disabled people.”
In Europe, on the other hand, Art Brut is publicly recognized as one of the established artistic genres, and it garners considerable attention from medical, welfare, and educational personnel. We collaborate with global research organizations of Art Brut. This gives us a chance to promote hidden talented artists in Japan, to the rest of the world.
