“Naïf painting? The one that sprouts directly from heart and feelings, avoiding with more or less skill, the cold filters of intellect. Naïf painting is no easy to define. I would say that it is a poetical, sometimes satirical or sharp, reinvention of our everyday world, the one that bothers and hurts us, to make this world more tolerable. Innocence, sweetness, pure whiteness, in the immaculate look of the artist’s eye. To whom, the tradicional or academics norms, do not have any meaning.”
