Shiga Prefecture is known for supporting a number of talented art brut artists — those who have not received formal artistic education. The term “art brut” was originally coined by the French painter Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) as a term to describe art usually created by children and psychiatric patients. In Japan the genre has developed in its own unique way, especially in Shiga.
