Outsider Art Fair 2016 January 21 -24.

Olof-Art will present on the Outsider Art Fair New York 2016 January 21 – 24,  a series of 16 unpublished paintings by French self-taught artist Gérard Sendrey. His work is usually known for a technique of finely meshed lines, obsessively covering the paper and creating a delicate graphic texture in which figures, mostly human, appear unexpectedly.

OAF NY 2016

Olof Art is back in New York to participate in one of the most important
Outsider Art events globally – the New York Outsider Art Fair. Outsider Art Fair sets high standards where only selected few galleries and art dealers get to be admitted to the Art Fair. In January, when OAF will open its doors, Olof Art will showcase a variety of artworks by Gerard Sendrey, Candyce Brokaw, Ross Brodar and John van Orsouw to name a few. The curators of Olof Art -Hab Vandenwijngaard, Scarlett Haasnoot and Larisa Gutierrez – have put together an exciting collection of Outsider Art which will certainly appeal to the audience.
