Art Brut

A French term that means "raw art". It was invented by Jean Dubuffet in an attempt to describe and explain naive and graffiti art made outside the normal fine art's academic tradition. He termed it as "outsider art", made by loners, prisoners, the mentally ill and other groups of people considered marginalized. It is made without thought to presentation or imitation.

Hyper modernism

Hyper-modernism is a cultural art movement which uses recent technological approaches and materials, but is in diametrical opposition to the modernist styles of art which preceded it.
