The Outsiders
Drago Jurak, Ana Matina, Zeljko Korosec, Zvonimir Krancelbinder... Less explored authors whose creative work is positioned at the edge of Naive Art, bordering with Outsider Art, Art Brut and similar phenomena in contemporary art. Presenting these authors is an attempt to show the richness and diversity of Naive Art, but also the possibility of new perspectives - considering at the phenomenon of Naive Art from new angles.

From the cycle "Fantazmopolis" cycle of fantastic, of imagined cities: the city-ships, city cathedral; cities connected by a multitude of architectural elements in its exuberance and the dense population create perfect harmony and an indivisible unit.

Minimalism, simplicity, schematicity brought to the full expression and creative power.

Social criticism and critic of political systems through unusual forms that classifies Zvonimir Krancelbinder by the edge area of Naive Art.
