the essential
The small museum of raw and popular art, created by Martine and Pierre-Louis Boudra, exhibited some of its works in Céret.

A selection of works from the raw, naive, popular art museum “Les amours d’Angélique” in Carla-Bayle in Ariège, is currently exhibited at the Art Sant Roch association of artists and craftsmen in Céret (Pyrénées- Oriental). Martine and Pierre-Louis Boudra, who are at the origin of this unique collection, have made numerous discoveries and rescues of works by unusual, anonymous and completely original creators.

From their collection of more than 1,000 works, around 150 pieces are presented at Art Sant Roch. For this unusual exhibition in Céret, a selection of 5 art brut artists was made: Luigi Buffo, Joseph Donadello, Thierry Chanaud, Monique Vigneaux and Severino De Zotti star at Art Sant Roch. The artist Donadello, who practiced many trades (mason, carpenter, shoemaker, postman) has the motto “if I dream it, I do it”. This gave rise to a host of animals and characters.

His sometimes provocative works have also been exhibited at the art brut museum in Paris, the Halle Saint-Pierre. Another atypical character present in Sant Roch is the mason Luigi Buffo, creator of more than 400 sculptures in plane wood, especially characters and faces, around 200 of which were saved by Martine and Pierre-Louis. Monique Vigneaux makes characters from wool, wire, bottles and various recycled materials and tells herself tales in which she settles accounts with her life.

Thierry Chanaud sculpts, walks and draws and writes his life in drawings in school notebooks. All these artists have in common their simple approach, without artistic pretension, but each in their own very personal style. All are recognized as true representatives of the raw and unusual art movement.
