2020’S BEST NAÏVE ARTISTS NAMED BY 25 GALLERIES:

RICHARD HASKINS, PIERO GIANFRANCESCHI, SHU YU, IBAN VAN DER ZEYP, GREG SUPPLE, SHAHIDA SHAYGAN, NPRIMA

BIO OF FIRST PLACE WINNER: Richard Haskins

Drawing on the people and events of my childhood primarily, my art is a mix of memories and imagination. This era has been my primary source of inspiration and has allowed me to return to a time when things were much simpler. A look back that generates new curiosity in viewers of all ages. Faceless people spring to life in colorful paint, each piece is a world inhabited by my favorite icons and motifs, Children, Animals, Fishing, the Great Outdoors, and New England. My goal is to create something unique yet familiar in a way that resists taking life to seriously.​
