Jean Dubuffet

Datum narození: 31. červenec 1901
Datum úmrtí: 12. květen 1985

Jean Philippe Arthur Dubuffet byl francouzský malíř a sochař.

Jeho dílo je řazeno k informelu, tašismu či patafyzice. Kolem roku 1948 měl blízko k francouzským surrealistům, ale hnutí opustil. Ovlivněn knihou psychiatra Hanse Prinzhorna definoval tzv. art brut, k němuž se i hlásil a obrazy řazené k tomuto směru také sbíral . Své obrazy a skulptury vytvářel z polystyrénu, betonu, lávy, textilu, kůže, uschlých větví a jednou dokonce i z motýlích křídel. Psal též ceněné eseje a teoretické práce o umění, pokoušel se komponovat i hudbu. Wikipedia

„It pleased me (and I think this predilection is more or less constant in all my paintings) to juxtapose brutally, in these feminine bodies, the extremely general and the extremely particular, the metaphysical and the grotesque trivial. In my view, the one is considerably reinforced by the presence of the other.“

„The role of the artist.... and the poet is precisely to blur normal categories, to disrupt them, and by doing so restore to the eyes and the mind ingenuity and freshness.“

—  Jean Dubuffet

„Man's need for art is absolutely primordial, as strong as, and perhaps stronger than, our need for bread. Without bread, we die of hunger, but without art we die of boredom.“
