carnival art is smart.

i have become fascinated with the fabulously folkloric carnival art i have discovered on firstdibs – my new port of call for research and inspiration. the saturated hues, bright lights, bold text and abundance of animals naively portrayed in this outsider art gives good optimism and a big smile on style. i’m imagining a wall of targets for the living room, multi-colour sconce lighting for the bathroom, bunnies for the garden and spinning wheels for almost anywhere…roll up! roll up!
