Ok obviously I have a soft spot for naive art. Maybe it's the simplistic and unaffected nature. Maybe it's the fun and imaginative ramblings of an erratic, spontaneous, fun and free mind! Who knows. But I dig it. I also dig Marni, soooo....I want all of this!
Marni is doing a bunch of collaborations they call "Marni's Editions"which is super cute and the above creations are thanks to former New York Times illustrator Brian Rea.
From the Marni blog:
"People, animals and cities are drawn with an unexpected naturalness, result, however, of a careful work of removal. Indeed, for Brian Rea, “less is more” and the cleanness and sharpness of his work is accompanied by a subtle irony, a slight sarcasm which allows him to represent daily reality with a light, refined and truly special touch."
