Self-Taught & Visionary Art in New Zealand

Also known as ‘house-truck art’, Neo-tribal Psychedelia involves varying degrees of planned design and intuitive work. Technical virtuosity is considered a measure of success.

Rhythmic pattern-making and visual dazzle is common, as well as attention to colour relationships, symbolic and archaic motif, and a stylisation of forms.

Women dominate this category.
