Jean Dubuffet is know for a unique style of working called art brut, a French term that translates as raw art. This term describes art such as graffiti or naive art which is made outside the academic tradition of fine art.
Dubuffet was one of the most important French artists to emerge after World War II. He was inspired by the childlike art of the painter Paul Klee, and from the 1940s on, his study of this type of art gave him the inspiration he sought for his own art, as it represented for him the most authentic expression of emotion and human values.
