Faux Naïf Paintings
Faux Naïf Painting Collection
At Cohle Gallery, we pride ourselves on curating a diverse collection of captivating contemporary and modern art. We are delighted to showcase our Faux Naïf Painting collection, which offers a playful and imaginative take on this unique art movement.
The Charm of Faux Naïf
Faux Naïf, French for "false naïve," refers to a painting style that emulates the candid quality of outsider or folk art while demonstrating formal artistic skill. First emerging in the early 20th century, Faux Naïf celebrates the avant-garde spirit through intentionally childlike compositions and bold colours. Our collection captures the movement's idiosyncratic charm through artists like Adam Handler, whose vibrant, spontaneous works evoke nostalgia and imagination.
A World of Imagination
The collection includes Faux Naïf perspectives from talents around the globe, such as Indonesian artist Indra Dodi, known for imaginative acrylics influenced by Art Brut. We also feature famed French artist Speedy Graphito, whose playful pop culture creations blend Faux Naïf with street art. Together, these works form a creative landscape rich with color, humor, and visual delight.
