Echt KURVITS in Oil

Solo exhibition by Aivar Kurvits (Estonia)

February 28 – March 24, 2019

French artist Jean Dubuffetgave the name art brut to one of the most vivid art trend. The word brut has many variations in French: raw,clear, bright, primal, forceful. Today, a lot of the art of disabled people can be seen as art brut where elements of nature and society have been connected differently from the real world.
The greatest master of art brut in Estonia surely is Aivar Kurvits who, in March, will be sixty years old. Despite the fact that Aivar has spent most of his life in orphanages and nursing homes, and that his hands, legs and head function differently from regular people, he has created a unique and lovely world. Aivar’s erotic paintings of Adam and Eve, Kalevipoeg and the Island Maid are full of primal vigor the Estonian contemporary painting is short of.

The great birthday exhibition of Aivar Kurvits is open at the Museum of New Art in Pärnu from February, 28 to March, 24.

Come and enjoy the echt art!

Curator of Echt KURVITS in Oil
